The Departments of Conservation and Archaeological Research at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation announce a multidisciplinary conference designed to bring conservators, archaeologists, and forensic anthropologists together to discuss the unique problems faced when working with human remains. Each discipline approaches this material from a different point; at times the techniques used by one discipline may impede the work of another. The conference will serve as a forum for discussions relating to the need for standardization (does it exist?) and the potential for developing policies and procedures for the removal, documentation, and storage of human remains. Session topics include analytical methods, ethical issues pertaining to the retrieval, conservation, and analysis of human remains, legal issues, questions of display, and a session covering storage and the potential biohazards of the improper handling of human remains. For more information and/or to be placed on the mailing list, contact Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg Institute, P.O. Box 1776, Williamsburg, VA 23187-1776, (800) 603-0948, (757) 220-7182, fax (757) 565-8630, email
