Request for Proposals – New Pottery Handbook

The Minnesota Historical Society and the Oversight Board of the Statewide Survey of Historical and Archaeological Sites has posted a request for proposals for the initial phase of assembling a handbook of Minnesota Precontact Pottery.  The purpose of this project is to conduct literature and collections research, facilitate professional discussion and create a new classification system for Minnesota precontact ceramics that will form the basis for eventual production of a finished publication.  Additional phases of  work will occur as funding allows.  The ultimate goal is to create a new version of A Handbook of Minnesota Prehistoric Ceramics originally published in 1979.  Here is the link to the State Register where the announcement is posted on page 921 (page 9 of 14 of this issue)  https://mn.gov/admin/assets/SR43_31%20-%20Accessible_tcm36-369656.pdf  Proposals are due February 19, 2019
