Department of Archaeology
As chair of the Archaeology Department, I'm delighted to offer you my congratulations. These are challenging times, and we are very disappointed that we can't send you off in the usual in-person ceremony, but if archeology teaches us anything it is that change is always part of human affairs and that we humans are a resilient lot.
