The 82nd Annual Meeting of the New York State Archaeological Association will be held at Bonnie Castle Resort Hotel, Alexandria Bay, N.Y. The conference theme is on St. Lawrence River archaeology. Although the modern U.S.-Canadian border did not exist in prehistory, its presence has nonetheless had a significant impact on the way we interpret the culture history of the valley. It raises the question of whether the cultural complexes we use are really objective constructs or whether they are influenced more by the border and the limits that it places on research.
