. This announcement is targeted towardsarchaeologists who are nationals of Indonesia and Timor Leste. The Anthony F. Granucci Fund,
through the Australian National University (ANU), will make capital available to fund smallresearch grants to qualified applicants. The fund has been established to encourage younger researchers
in general those under the age of forty five - who are of Indonesian and Timoresenationality or who are resident in the Republic of Indonesia or the Republic of Timor Leste.Researchers may be in collaboration with non-qualified parties in connection with their projects.The Fund will provide: a) One or more research grants per annum to researchers submittingworthy proposals within the topic area; b) Funds to assist in the translation of papers into Englishfor their publication and dissemination.The topic area shall be the prehistory and protohistory of the geographical area covered atthe time of the creation of the fund by the territory of the Republic of Indonesia and the Republicof Timor Leste. For purposes of this fund, prehistory and protohistory shall include the time period beginning from 40,000 BP to and including the early metal age (to 1000 BP). Topicsfalling outside these geographic and temporal ranges may be considered for prizes and grantswhen they include a significant aspect inside the range such as, by way of example, interactions between indigenous cultures and Indic influences or comparative studies of issues and materialoutside and inside the geographical area.Awardees of grants shall be obligated to submit reports on their work and utilisation of funds and to submit a final report or paper in the Indonesian or English languages. If a paper hasnot been published, a portion of the grant could be used towards the costs of translating the paper into English (if necessary or advisable for broad circulation) and assisting in the publication of the article or paper.

.The University of Arizona NSF-Arizona Mass Spectrometry Laboratory is announcing a program
to foster scholarly research in developing nations. The program’s objective is to provide
radiocarbon dates at no cos
to colleagues who, due to limited funding or limited instrumentalinfrastructure, would not otherwise have access to accelerator mass spectrometry. Twenty AMSradiocarbon dates per year will be awarded to successful applicants in the fields of archaeology,geoscience, and environmental science. Applications are being accepted from Southeast Asianand the Pacific Island nations at this time. Qualifying nations include Burma, Laos, Thailand,Viet Nam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and all indigenous Pacific Nations.Australia, Brunei, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, Hawaii, New Caledonia, and New Zealand areexcluded.Application Process. The application process requires the submission of a brief projectdescription, including a detailed description of the samples, their contexts, and their significance(2 pages maximum). Applicants must also submit an NSF-Arizona AMS Laboratory SampleSubmission Form and the Dating Agreement Form. These are available on-line at:www.physics.arizona.edu/amsA single applicant may request up to three (3) AMS dates per project, per year. Closingdates are
January 1, May 1 and September 1 in each year
, and in each round the committeewill allocated approximately one third of the 20 dates available for each calendar year.Successful applications will have several characteristics, crucially: 1) The proposalshould show scientific merit and clearly demonstrate that AMS radiocarbon dating is appropriate
to address the question at hand. 2) The project’s principal investigator should be base
d in thecountry in which the project is conducted, and should be directly and actively involved inconducting and completing the project. Applicants must also agree to publish the dates withinscholarly journals and make them freely available to other researchers upon request.Acknowledgement of the program and the NSF-Arizona AMS Laboratory in any papers, reportsand publications that develop from the project would be appreciated.

. The National University of Singapore Museum, part of the NUSCentre for the Arts, has decided to allocate space to a Sherd Library. This facility will house awide-ranging reference collection of ceramics from archaeological sites along the Silk Road of the Sea, which linked West, South, Southeast and East Asia.The Sherd Library will provide facilities where scholars and students of all levels from allover the world can view and handle earthenware, porcelain, and stoneware for the purpose of comparative research. For this purpose, the Museum is seeking donations of sherds from as manysites as possible. We hope to collect sherds from all types of archaeological sites, from kilns intheir countries of origin, to sherds from shipwrecks and from habitation sites.The Museum would like to solicit donations for this unique facility. The Museum iswilling to pay the cost of packing and shipping. We will also provide a copy of the book 
 Earthenware in Southeast Asia
in exchange for larger sherd collections. Should donors wish,their names will be prominently displayed (though those who may prefer to remains anonymousmay do so), and those using the collection will be required to cite the name of the donor in any publications which make use of their donation.Please address all inquires, suggestions, etc. to: Prof John Miksic, Southeast AsianStudies Programme, National University of Singapore, Singapore 117570.

 Message to the EASAA: In the aftermath of the of situation occurring in East Timor in the past few weeks, which is mostly characterized by
 political and civil unrest, the Governments’ institutions are working to a minimum and only
slowly getting back to normality. As a consequence, and although this is still confined to thecapital city, Dili, logistics such as obtaining authorization from local authorities, renting a car or getting food, became much more difficult thus hindering the possibility of carryingarchaeological work in East Timor for the time being.A week ago, and considering that the news published in Australia on the crisis in EastTimor did not convey properly much of what was happening, I have decided to create a blogwhere I constantly try to add information originally published in Portuguese.Distinct languages convey different ways of understanding and explaining the world. In
this sense, East Timor’s past and recent history is one of indubitable richness. Sadly for the
Timorese, this axiom represents a problem in itself. Due to its geography and history, East Timor is an island between worlds where people from many different nationalities have recently addedto the cultural melting pot that already existed.
