The David and Elizabeth DeJarnette Endowed Scholarship is awarded annually by the Department of Anthropology. As per the eclectic interests of David L. DeJarnette, priority of consideration is given to graduate students who are conducting archaeological research at Moundville Archaeological Park, the southeastern United States more generally, or in Latin America. Recipients of this prestigious award are announced publicly at the annual DeJarnette Barbecue.
This January the UAAC had the pleasure of camping for two nights at Leroy Percy State Park (in cabins!) and assisting one of our fellow students with her dissertation research at Arcola Mounds in the Mississippi Delta. Students and volunteers participated in a controlled surface collection of the site and toured the nearby Winterville Mounds. Another wonderful trip and a fantastic way to bring in the new semester! Thank you Ashley and Jessica (and Angelica!) for organizing this for us!
Wednesday night we hosted a mid-semester social to get everyone together and relax a bit after midterms. Club members took a break and enjoyed pizza, snacks, and The Lego Movie. Thank you Brass (and Angelica!) for organizing such a nice event!
