The Society for Archaeological Sciences has a strong presence on multiple social media platforms, as you can see in the "Connect with us" box at left. But what's the difference between the accounts?
Best for keeping up with official society announcements and curated archaeological science publications selected by our VP of Digital Media: The SAS Facebook Page
Best for sharing your own archaeo sci content with a relevant audience: The SAS Facebook Group
Not a Facebook user? We've got you covered. We duplicate almost all of our FB Page content on The SAS LinkedIn Page.
Want to share your own archaeo sci and related content but you're not on Facebook? Join The SAS LinkedIn Group. Just remember that this group does not duplicate the FB group content.
If you're into the whole brevity thing, follow SAS on Twitter. Our Twitter account is managed independently of the Facebook and LinkedIn accounts by social media volunteer Beth Velliky.
We're on Instagram but there is nothing on our Instagram. We will let you know when that changes.
SASnet, a moderated email network for The Society for Archaeological Sciences, has existed since 1991 to facilitate discussion about the applications of methods from the physical and natural sciences to archaeological problems, and to provide rapid communication among archaeometrists and archaeologists. SASnet is not just for members; anyone can subscribe using the instructions on this page. The Society provides the listserv as a resource for all cultural heritage workers who need access to technical expertise and as a forum for physical and natural scientists to discuss the development of archaeological applications for their methods. The users also take advantage of the listserv to announce upcoming conferences and workshops, award competitions, and educational and employment opportunities.

SAS Blog (aka The SAS Bulletin Online)
Formerly, the SAS blog was a standalone online product of the society. Since 2019, the blog and traditional Bulletin have merged and now Bulletin content is published there first and then summarized in quarterly digests received by SAS members. All blog posts from before the merger are archived on the present version of the blog and can be viewed.
