With the help of a sabbatical leave, I’m making 2013-14 my “writing year”, with the goal of finishing a book I have been promising my colleagues for some time now. It is the culmination of many years of data collection at archaeological sites in Peru (where I’ve been doing fieldwork continuously since 1983) and in museums in Peru, Europe, and the United States. The book has been delayed by a few distractions over the years (other archaeological field projects and publications, teaching and mentoring of students, and service at various levels to my department, school, university, and profession), but it is now on the front burner. Its working title is Holes in the Head: the Art and Archaeology of Trepanation in Ancient Peru.
