Request for Discussion (RFD) of sci.archaeology.mesoamerican (unmoderated)

sci.archaeology.mesoamerican  The field of mesoamerican archaeology.

Proposer(s):- Elin Danien       ([email protected]) and
              Lachlan Cranswick ([email protected])

Please note that this proposed newsgroup is intended to be an open forum
for discussion of archaeology.  Thus relevant topics for this newsgroup
should only be limited to what the participants in this proposed newsgroup
regard as relevant.
------------------------------------------------

We propose a new unmoderated newsgroup called
sci.archaeology.mesoamerican.  The main aim of
sci.archaeology.mesoamerican is to provide an open forum for the
discussion of mesoamerican archaeology and related fields on the internet.

Following a discussion and positive email response on sci.archaeology,
there seems to be the support for this proposed newsgroup.

(Could people reading this post mention it to colleagues who might be
interested and benefit from a mesoamerican archaeology newsgroup but not
normally use the internet newsgroups.)

	Proposed Name of Group
---------------------------------------
	sci.archaeology.mesoamerican (unmoderated)
	
	Purpose of New Newsgroup
_______________________________--

The purpose of sci.archaeology.mesoamerican is to provide an open
discussion forum for the mesoamerican archaeology community on the
internet.  The newsgroups allow the rapid and timely discussion of

Cultures covered include, but are not limited to:
	Maya
	Aztec
