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 Social Media: The SAS Facebook Page. Volunteer Maedeh Darzi manages the SAS presence on Facebook.

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.

If you're into the whole brevity thing, follow SAS on X (formerly Twitter).

We're also on Instagram; stop what you're doing and check it out!

SAS Member/Paper Spotlight

We are launching the SAS Member Spotlight (SMS) and SAS Paper Spotlight (SPS) programs and we need your help! The SMS is designed to help SAS members showcase their work and research activities via the SAS social media accounts. The SPS hightlights recently published research of SAS members.

All SAS members are warmly invited to participate in SMS/SPS, while we particularly encourage SAS members in their early career stages and / or from under-represented minorities and other marginalized groups.

If you are interested in being spotlighted in the SMS, please complete the SMS intake form available here

If you are interested in having your paper spotlighted in the SPS, please complete the SPS intake form available here.

If you have any questions about the SMS/SPS programs, please contact Vana Orfanou, SAS Vice-President for Social Media (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

SASnet Listserv

SASnet is a moderated email network managed by The Society for Archaeological Sciences as a free service for the international archaeometry community. The listserv has existed since 1991 to facilitate discussion about the application 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 listserv is a resource for all cultural heritage workers who need access to technical expertise and serves 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.
