Time to try a new conference! I was a first time exhibitor at the American Schools of Oriental Research's (ASOR) Annual Meeting and it was a great success! The subject matter of this meeting is a great complement to and extension of what I am used to working on. Jordan, Egypt, the Near East, Greece, Biblical archaeology...A really interesting mixture. The exhibit hall was really a hallway and had high traffic as people rushed about to and from the various sessions and meetings. I met a lot of the same faces behind the book sellers tables as well! Baltimore is an old city with a lot of history that I wish I was able to see more of. I did go to the Walters Art Museum and saw their amazing Greek and Roman collection! One pot on display I used in my MA Thesis about the iconography of the bird and its possible relationship to the soul.
