The Archaeological Society of Connecticut, Inc. was founded in New Haven in 1934. It consisted then as it does today of avocational and professional archaeologists and those interested in Archaeology. The Society serves to create situations in which these people may learn, contribute and remain current on archaeological activities around the state of Connecticut as well as learn about the latest discoveries and archaeological techniques from around the country and, to a lesser extent, the world.
The objectives of the Society are to:
- Promote the study of historic and prehistoric archaeology in Connecticut.
- Promote and encourage scientific research in this field.
- Promote the spread of archaeological knowledge, especially by means of publications and meetings.
- Serve as a bond between archaeologists in this state and elsewhere.
The ASC is a non-profit organization.
