Welcome to the Archaeology 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.

Unfortunately, many of the Archaeological Society of Alberta events over the last couple of years had to be cancelled because of COVID-19. We are now getting back up and running. Many centres are offering in-person and online activities. Check out the centre pages for more information.

We are excited to be planning our joint ASA/SAA conference this summer! The Archaeological Society of Alberta and the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society are looking forward to welcoming everyone in Bodo Alberta in April 2023! Check out the Conferences page for information about the event.
