Illinois Valley Archaeological Society

Welcome to the homepage of the Illinois Valley Archaeological Society.

The Illinois Valley Archaeological Society is a chapter of the IAAA, founded to unite all persons interested in the archaeology of Illinois - amateurs, professionals, students, and educators. The purposes of the association are preserving prehistoric and historic archaeological sites, information, and artifacts; encouraging and participating in scientific investigations and research; and fostering constructive public and governmental attitudes toward the archaeology of the State of Illinois and contiguous regions. The association and its members are opposed to the destruction, unauthorized excavation, or looting of archaeological sites and actively discourage commercialism in archaeological artifacts.

Meets at Dickson Mounds Museum, near Lewistown, IL at 7:00 p.m. the first Tuesday of the month. Contact Alan Harn (309) 547-3721.
