Website Launch: Association of Archaeological Wear and Residue Analysts



Dear Colleagues,

Website Launch:  Association of Archaeological Wear and Residue Analysts

Following the successful meeting in Portugal and the formation of AWRANA, the Association of Archaeological Wear and Residue Analysts, we are happy to announce the launch of the AWRANA website:

The scope of the association is broad, and we hope it will include all those studying tools made of metals, ceramics, bone, antler, shells, stones and other materials. The range of wear and residue studies will not only include the full range of tasks associated with artefact manufacture and tool-use but also wear and other traces that may be derived from weathering, taphonomy and other processes.

The website hosts details on upcoming networking events and conferences, jobs, resources (books, websites) and will develop as a central hub for communication among specialists and students.

You can join as an Affiliate Member by using the form here:®mem=true

Making a donation (minimum 10 Euros) to AWRANA will upgrade you to an Associate Member. Donations can be made online at the website. A donation will mean that you are contributing to the sustainability of the society and will also give you access to further benefits, including participation in collaborative research projects from time to time, eligibility for conference discounts and grants for conference and workshop attendance. Your status as an Affiliate or Associate Member will be published on the AWRANA website. We will consider the option of annual subscriptions at the next international use-wear meeting being planned for Leiden by Annelou van Gijn. For details, watch the website.

Please forward this message to your colleagues and lists.

Best wishes,

President: Dr Richard Fullagar, University of Wollolongong

Vice President: Dr Veerle Rots, University of Li├Ęge

Website Content Manager: Dr Adrian Evans, University of Bradford
