Over the years many people have been frustrated by the concept of 'intensity' on the glass beads page. The page, and all of the bead charts have now been updated to reflect the actual numbers of the beads. A few new thoughts and ways of looking at the beads have also been added.
Have a look and let us know what you think!

Archaeology & Experiment: Moving beyond the artifacts (papers)
Experimental archaeology moves beyond the artifacts, allowing researchers to examine the underlying question of "how" related to artifact finds. Ideally, experiments can provide a preliminary answer to the question "Does this theory of how it was done actually work". A keystone of experimental archaeology (and a differentiator from reenactment/recreation) is that it follows the scientific method of question, setup, and result - whether that result is positive or negative. Presentations in this session will be expected to review all three key elements in the discussion of their paper. Papers submitted for these sessions would be good candidates for publication in the EXARC Journal.
Proposals are due by 15 Sep, 2016 and should be sent to me (email@example.com). Proposal forms are available at http://wmich.edu/medievalcongress/submissions

I was asked about updating the beads pages to use bead numbers instead of intensity. I have recently finished updating the spreadsheets involved. Now the fun comes in re-writing the glass bead page and doing the updated bead charts. Look for that in the next month or so.

Once again DARC sponsored a session on Experimental Archaeology at the International Congress on Medieval Studies. As usual it was a lot of fun. This year, however, brought a new twist as we arrived to register. This was up as a large poster at the front door.
