The Society for Archaeological Sciences is a professional society for those involved and interested in physical and natural science applications in archaeology, paleoanthropology. and art conservation. By joining, you can benefit from our network of diverse scientists, and support the infrastructure of this interdisciplinary endeavor.
Our goals are to:
- establish forums for the discussion of current issues in archaeological science;
- inform archaeologists, anthropologists, and other professionals about the potential application of techniques adopted from the physical and natural sciences;
- encourage research, presentation, and publication on archaeological science topics;
- cooperate with other archaeological, anthropological, and archaeometric associations and societies to further our common interests.
We can best accomplish these goals with the membership and active involvement of professionals, students, and interested citizens. See our membership benefits poster for more details
