BAHID and BAFA
I'm feeling virtuous, and maybe a little hard-done-by today, as I am giving up my hard-earned weekend to attend the British Association of Human Identification conference in Manchester. I usually enjoy these events, but I just wish they weren't scheduled for the weekend. It's a chance to meet up with old friends and make new ones, in a slightly down-at-heel university conference centre. I will also be attending the second meeting of the British Association of Forensic Anthropology, where I am on the Academic Committee. I will also be attending a workshop on Disaster Victim Identification, which is set to be interesting and informative, but I'm not expecting a laugh a minute. Think of me, will you, stuck in a stuffy room with about 200 other anthropologists, while you're enjoying the crisp autumn sunshine this Sunday?
