Artifacts Newsletter

A member e-newsletter published monthly.


All IAS members are encouraged to submit news, articles, and any items of interest for publication. Without active contribution of IAS members, Artifacts would not be possible.


Please feel free to submit any news of upcoming projects, excavations, lectures, workshops, and classes, as well as feature-length articles. With your help, ArtiFacts will continue to be a vital forum for news and commentary that deals with archaeology in Idaho and elsewhere.


We need your contributions if all IAS chapters are to be represented fairly and equitably.
