About Us

The Albuquerque Archaeological Society is a non-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of New Mexico and has been a strong supporter for cultural resource preservation since its foundation in 1966. It is affiliated with the Archaeological Society of New Mexico (https://newmexico-archaeology.org/).

The purposes of the Society are to preserve and protect prehistoric and historic remains in the region; to educate members and the public in archaeological and ethnological fields; to conduct archaeological studies, research, surveys, and excavations; to publish data obtained from research studies and excavations; and to cooperate with other scientific institutions.

We advocate the preservation of archaeological and other cultural resources, and inform members and the public about archaeological and ethnological subjects through our meetings, presentations, newsletter, other electronic media, field trips, volunteer efforts, field surveys, and studies.

The AAS holds regular meetings at 7:30 pm on the third Tuesday of each month (except August and December) in the auditorium of the Albuquerque Museum, 2000 Mountain Road NW, Albuquerque (in Old Town). There is an invited guest speaker at each meeting and we work hard to be sure that you are guaranteed a wide variety of interesting and informative lectures. Our speakers are chosen from a diversity of professionals and scholars in archaeology and related fields.
