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.

As of February 8th, 2018, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s archaeology collection will once again be open for research requests. Please send queries to Amy L. Covell-Murthy at
