to Chris thank you

I'm a new member to this list and I have a hard time believeing that
established anthropologist have nothing better to discuss then the point
of sex gender for the word "watchdog". I think that Chris's idea of a
change of topic is needed. No flamming please. I would also be
interested in the subject of field school. I would be interested in
field schools in England , Northern France and Belgium.

I will be going To England and Belgium and would also be interested in
any sites that are availabel at that time. I'm a graduating in May and
i'm currently also taking a graduate class. I'm interested in forensic
anthropology. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
