The Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology, Inc. was organized in 1929 to:

  •  Promote the study of the prehistoric and historic archaeological resources of Pennsylvania and neighboring states.
  •  Encourage scientific research and discourage exploration which is unscientific or irresponsible in intent or practice.
  •  Promote the conservation of archaeological sites, artifacts, and information.
  •  Encourage the establishment and maintenance of sources of archaeological information such as museums, societies, and educational programs.
  •  Promote the dissemination of archaeological knowledge by means of publications and forums.
  •  Foster the exchange of information between the professional and the avocational archaeologists.


Anthropology Collection
at the
Carnegie Museum of Natural History

October 9, 2014
To Whom It May Concern:

The Anthropology collection at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History will be closed to research completely for approximately two years, beginning summer 2015. While this is a long time, it is for a very good reason. We have been awarded an NEH grant that will be used to install compactor storage in the Archaeological collection area. This is a huge step in ensuring the preservation and duration of the collection. If anyone would like access prior to June 2015, please contact me. I will do my best to arrange that for you.
