UPF has had a busy month so far! Over the past two weeks, we traveled to two conferences in the Southeast: the 73rd Annual Southeastern Archaeological Conference (SEAC) in Athens, Georgia and the 82nd Annual Southern Historical Association (SHA) Meeting in St. Pete Beach, Florida.

Southeastern Archaeological Conference 2016

We had a great time in Athens at SEAC 2016 meeting scholars in the field of southeastern archaeology, as well as displaying our wide variety of books in the subject. This year’s conference set a new record with almost 900 attendees!

At the conference, our very own editor at large Judith Knight and two series editors of our Ripley P. Bullen Series, William Marquardt and Vernon “Jim” Knight, were honored with SEAC’s Lifetime Acievement Award. Congratulations to our editors!

Check out some of the books we sold at SEAC this year:
