History of the Society

The SAS was founded in 1977 as part of a broad effort to get archaeological science to function more effectively by supporting communication among researchers and graduate student training. Read about the first 40 years of SAS in this essay by Rob Sternberg. 

Awards

The Society holds annual competitions for awards, including the Student Research International Travel Award, the R. E. Taylor Award for archaeometry posters, and the JAS Emerging Investigator Award. All archaeologists are warmly welcome to submit work for consideration!
