Arizona Archaeological Society




The Rim Country Chapter of AAS is located in Payson, AZ, at the base of the Mogollon Rim.  Meetings generally include a guest speaker presenting an archaeological related subject. Refreshments are served. An outing 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 Prehistoric Ruins Site. The completion of the excavation project will likely take several years, (Note: participation in the excavation, after meeting outings, and field trips is open only to current members of the Arizona Archaeological Society.)

Meeting Time and Place

Meetings are held the first Saturday of each month, (except July & August.) We meet at 10 a.m. in the Payson Public Library in the Rumsey Park Complex at 328 N McLane Rd in Payson.  Guests are always welcome.  Meeting Location Map


You can join the Rim Country chapter of AAS with a "Single" or "Family" membership.  If you are already a member of AAS through a different chapter, you can add the Rim Country chapter to your membership by selecting "Single" or "Family" after "Dual Chapter".
