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.

To Whom It May Concern:
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.
