UPF recently traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the 2016 American Association of Physical Anthropologists 85th Annual Meeting. We had a wonderful time meeting and talking to the many scholars working in the the field of physical anthropology! The event was a huge success, with much of AAPA’s large membership base in attendance.

Our booth was packed with UPF’s diverse selection of new and bestselling bioarchaeology books. Thank you to everyone who visited us at the meeting!

Many of our authors attended this year’s meeting, such as Brenda Baker, coeditor of Migration and Disruptions: Toward a Unifying Theory of Ancient and Contemporary MigrationsDebra Martin, coeditor of The Bioarchaeology of Violence, and Gwen Robbins Schug, author of Bioarchaeology and Climate Change: A View from South Asian Prehistory.

In addition, we announced our new journal, Bioarchaeology International, which will provide a new outlet for rigorous peer-reviewed publication of substantive articles in the study of archaeological human remains and mortuary sites.

If you weren’t able to make it to the AAPA meeting this year, or if we sold out of a book you wanted to pick up, you can still check out all the books we displayed at our virtual booth by visiting www.upf.com/AAPA16.
