Hey, that's us!

It’s been two days at the 19th Indo-Pacific Prehistory Congress at Hanoi and it’s been a massive gathering with lots of great meet-ups. The opening ceremony yesterday was quite big – I found it quite cool that the former president of Vietnam (Tran Duc Long) is also the president of the Vietnam Association of Archaeology.
