Archaeology is the scientific study of the human past through its material remains. As an environmental science that explores past human-environmental interactions, it is uniquely positioned to study long-term cultural change.
The IAS creates two semi-annual digital publications: Idaho Archaeologist, a professional peer-review journal; and Artifacts, a member newsletter.
A collection of news articles about archaeology in Idaho. If you have any news to contribute, please feel free to contact us!

Membership is the driving force behind the organization. IAS offers a variety of membership levels and some great benefits of membership.
