Check out the link below to read about what some are calling “one of the most important (finds) in British archaeological history.”
The 87th Annual CSAS Meeting is being held on April 7-ll in Madison, Wisconsin. The following link will take you to this year’s CSAS Bulletin where you can find information on the conference as well as on awards. Check out Sarah Trabert, a K-State alumna and winner of the Leslie White award, on page 2.
Thanks to everyone who was able to make it to the meeting last night! We discussed a variety of upcoming events, and I think we have a lot of interesting things in the making.
Club Fees: First order of business…there will be a small membership fee this year in the amount of five dollars ($5). This money goes towards club activities such as CSAS fees and the end-of-year Graduate shindig. We’ve set a (flexible) deadline of October 31st. The money goes to our Treasurer, Kale Yoder.
Meetings: Our plan is to meet every other Thursday at 7pm. The location is likely to vary, however emails will be sent out, as well as information posted online, as to our whereabouts. Our next meeting will be on Thursday, October 8th at 7pm. Movie Night!! We’ll be watching the film Baraka. Hannah, our club secretary, has been nice enough to let us use her house. Directions will be sent out over email and can be found on our Facebook page.
Activities: A lot of really good ideas were thrown around and discussed. Among these were Movie Nights, Mini-Trips (within a 5-hour radius), Local Workshops, Flint Napping at Tuttle Creek, Kickball (at which we can hopefully get some professors to join in) and Atlatl Throwing. Any other/additional ideas are most welcome and can either be posted here, posted on our Facebook page, or emailed. A major event coming up in the next little while is CSAS. While no concrete plans exist as of yet, you can view more information about the conference above.
Fundraising: Anth Club t-shirts are in the making as you read this and will be sold to make money for future club events. Updated information on the t-shirts will be posted as it becomes available. Another fundraising idea was Bramlage clean-up. The club will be paid to sweep up after games at Bramlage. This is an excellent opportunity to make money for club activities. Anyone interested in volunteering, please contact one of the club officers for more information. Again, any and all fundraising ideas are most welcome!
Website: We encourage anyone and everyone to post their own interesting news/information on our website. All you have to do is register (lower right hand column on this page). To quote an earlier post, “If you come across anything that interests you that you think others in the Anthro Club would be interested in, go ahead and post it, whether it be a video, news link, ranting, etc. Hopefully we can get some good discussion going.”
Hope to see everyone at the next meeting!

Join us at Anneberg Park on Friday, September 11 for the annual Anthropology Club Potluck. We’ll be meeting in Shelter #2 from 5:30-7:30pm. This is a great opportunity to meet/get to know your fellow majors, minors, professors, and others interested in anthropology. In the spirit of Potluck-ness, please bring your favorite dish, snack, drink (non-alcoholic), or dessert to share with the group.
Anneberg #2 (the shelter) is located at the northwest corner of Jerry Dishman Lake in Frank Anneberg Park. In case you missed the handy directions sent out by Susan over the Listserv, they are as follows:
Directions: Drive west on Anderson Ave. Go past Seth Child, Village Plaza, and some houses. You will see Anneberg Dr. on your left (Sharingbrook Dr. is on the right). If you reach Kimball Ave/N Scenic Dr, you have gone too far. Turn left onto Anneberg Dr. and take a left at the fork. You should be driving around a lake. Hopefully, you’ll come across us.
