From the Editors
This issue is making its appearance as the V1th International Conference on Easter Island and the Pacific, held this year in Chile, is ending. We plan to have news about the meetings and the papers presented in our next issue. A great deal of planning and effort went into making the V1th International Conference a success, and we thank all of those involved for their hard work. While it is a tad far-afield, according to the author of Art and History in Paestum (2003), the word symposium originally meant a "drinking bout." Well, our lips are sealed.
