Welcome to the

Archaeological Society of Alberta

The Archaeological Society of Alberta (ASA) comprises over 300 members living across Alberta and beyond. There are six Centres (Bodo, Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer, and Southeastern), each with their own elected officials. These centres host a speaker series, workshops, fieldtrips, and other events. Click on the Centre nearest you in the above menu for information about their activities.

The ASA holds an annual general meeting and conference each spring, and publishes a biannual report called the Alberta Archaeological Review. We also have a general newsletter that highlights some of our activities. Follow the menu links above for more information about our ASA publications, the conference, our mandate, our centres, and other ASA resources.

About Archaeology


Archaeology is the study of past humans and how they lived by examining their material remains. Through excavation and analysis, these material remains can tell a story about how humans have tackled problems, survived, and thrived. Archaeologists can learn aspects about diet, housing, social status, and lifestyle.
