The Rim Country Chapter of AAS is located in Payson, AZ, at the base of the Mogollon Rim. Meetings are held the third Saturday of each month, (except July & August.) We meet at 10 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the Church of the Holy Nativity, 1414 Easy Street, Payson. Guests are always welcome.
Meetings generally include a guest speaker presenting an archaeological related subject. Refreshments are served. A hike or field trip to an archaeology site is normally scheduled for the afternoon following the general meeting. The RCC, under the guidance of Archaeologist Scott Wood, is participating in the excavation of the local Goat Camp Indian Ruins site. The completion of the excavation project will likely take several years, (Note: participation in the dig is open only to members of the Arizona Archaeological Society.)
