Summary

While archaeobotanist’s work hard at interpreting botanical data, one way to improve our interpretations is to interact about our material, tacking between raw and adjusted data to better understand those transformations with others, bringing us closer to the past. Like a gear change, presenting material and hearing responses make a big difference in our explanations and perspectives. I stress this here because of Steve’s crucial initiation of the Society for Ethnobiology some years ago, which has allowed many of us in the US to learn about the importance of presenting and listening to colleagues. Discussing data in the context of current methods and theories applied to paleoethnobotany launched the meetings and continues to allow us to advance our interpretations.
