As an academic, I find few things more frustrating than working long and hard to bring some piece of research to publication, only for the response to be . . . crickets. Thankfully this has not been my experience so far with the EWHADP. If the statistics are accurate, pages on this site have been viewed over 2800 times since the website was launched a week ago. Now, granted, that is a slightly less vigorous response than the world has given to this narrated video of a pair of manicured hands opening novelty Easter eggs, which has been viewed about 78 million times. But in terms of archaeology, it’s not too bad. Links were posted on several archaeology and anthropology pages on Facebook (e.g., UWF Graduate Anthropology Association, Research Laboratories of Archaeology at UNC-Chapel Hill, Tennessee Council for Professional Archaeology, Southeastern Archaeological Conference Student Affairs Committee, Florida Public Archaeology Network), the site was discussed on SEAC Underground, and word spread.
The response to my plea for additional information has also been heartening: almost immediately after the site was launched I started getting emails specifying sources of data. I have been incorporating that "new" information into the site as I have time, beginning with some Archaic house structures from Ontario and Michigan. There is much more on the way. I will continue to update this page as I add structures, and I will also post those updates on the EWHADP Facebook page. Stay tuned!
