DARC at ICMS 2016 (Kalamazoo)

DARC will be hosting a session at ICMS 2016 in Kalamazoo in May 2016.  |If you have been doing exarc and want to talk about it, we'd love to hear from you.  Note that a written paper is *NOT* required.
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.
