Classes start on the 23rd for us Baylor students. That day will mark the beginning of my last year at Baylor University. The end of excavations in Jordan found me as the guy who will be performing analysis of some of the tools from the Hemmeh assemblage. I’ll be doing use-wear analysis to (hopefully) determine the kinds of materials that these tools were used to work. Up until all this, I wasn’t planning on writing a senior thesis. But it looks like I’m going to be going for that option this last year at Baylor.

Aside from that, I’ve been appointed to the position of student representative of the Baylor Committee on Collections (library stuff and the like), by Student Body President Michael Wright. Along those lines, I’ll be continuing work as an assistant in the Texas Collection Archives at the Carroll Library building. In addition to those things, I’ll be taking on a full course load.

While I don’t know how I’ll be able to do all this and stay sane during senior year, I figure nobody can. I can still turn down my appointment, but I’m just going to take NAS’ advice and represent.

Anyway, expect more posts on use-wear analysis as I stumble through the literature on it.
