Do Not Migrate


The Southeastern Archaeological Conference (SEAC) has hosted a competition each year since 1991 for the most outstanding paper submitted by a student about the prehistory, ethnohistory, or historical archaeology of the Southeast. This coveted prize consists mostly of books donated by publishers, universities, and private entities. Valued at over $4,000, it is the largest of its kind.

At the 2006 meeting NCPTT added to the prize with free tuition for any of the upcoming NCPTT training events, a $1,785 donation based on last year’s “Prospection in Depth.” We would like to congratulate Mary Beth Fitts, of the University of North Carolina, as the 2006 winner with her paper, “People of the River, People of the Trail: Mapping Catawba Coalescence.”
