An academic journal has published an article co-authored by a St. Lawrence faculty member with University students and students in Kenya.

Nyame Akuma: Bulletin of the Society of Africanist Archaeologists includes in issue #60, December 2003, the article "Recent archaeological research in the Lake Magadi Basin, Southern Kenya," by Associate Professor of Anthropology John Barthelme and co-authors, including Robert DeLong '03, Tristan Slater '04, Rebecca Chartier '03 and three students from Kenya.

The paper discusses recent archaeological research in the southern Rift Valley of Kenya. Students assisted Barthelme in fieldwork as well as analysis, map-making and writing.

The Society of Africanist Archaeologists is an organization of archaeologists, researchers from associated disciplines and others who share an interest in African archaeology and African societies. Its membership is international, with participation from Africa, the Americas, Europe and Asia, and is actively involved in research in many African countries.

The bulletin Nyame Akuma is published twice a year and contains short reports on research projects as they take place around the continent.
