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
- 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
