Congratulations Michelle and Mike!

PhD student Michelle Bebber and undergraduate student Michael Wilson received the prestigious Student Paper Award from the Society of American Archaeology (SAA). They were honored at the annual SAA meeting in Washington, D.C. on Friday, April 13, 2018. Bebber and Wilson are members of Dr. Metin Eren's Experimental Archaeology Laboratory.

From the announcement at the award ceremony: “Michelle Bebber and Mike Wilson's paper "Untapped Potential – Why weren’t ceramic arrowheads invented? Theoretical Morphology for Understanding the Human Past" provides fresh perspective by integrating concepts from theoretical morphology with a textbook example of experimental archaeology. Their elegant research design is flawlessly executed to draw thoughtful conclusions about technological pathways that were never taken.”
