AAS Membership

As a member of the Arizona Archaeological Society, many opportunities are open to learn more about:

  • The history and prehistory of the great Southwest. From the historic old mines that dot our state to the earliest dwellings of the first inhabitants of the Southwest
  • How the climate and geology of the Southwest changed from earliest man to the time of the cowboys
  • The tools, weapons, and implements that were fashioned from rock and wood
  • Foods, both animals and plants used by the early man
  • How studying what early inhabitants left behind can tell us more about their lives and traditions
  • How artifacts and ruins are treated to preserve and protect them from opportunists

And AAS provides assistance in your interests:

  • Monthly meetings with lectures and presentations by top people in their fields
  • The monthly newsletter the Petroglyph keeps you up to date on what other Chapters are doing in the State.
  • A free copy of any new Arizona Archaeologist when published (professionally written papers about archaeological research in the Southwest).
  • Free downloads of pdfs of many of our past Arizona Archaeologists (available under the Member Only tab)
  • Classes in everything from field survey to stabilization of pueblo walls, or how to make ceramics like the prehistoric peoples did. And how to read the sherd of ancient ceramics and lithics left behind by those peoples. These classes can lead to your certification in various skills needed by professional archaeologists.
  • Field Schools in actual archaeological research locations where you practice what you learn in the classes. Becoming accomplished in the skills of reading the cleaning, classifying, and preparing the artifacts, for curation.
  • Projects which extend the use of your archaeological skills and assist some of the the best archaeologists in the Southwest.

Best of all, you get to participate in all these activities with great people of similar interest in the great open air of the Desert, Foothills, Highlands and Mountain Forests of the Southwest.
