About MAS

The purpose of the Michigan Archaeological Society is to inform members and educate the public of the need to recognize, understand and preserve the remains of past cultures for our own knowledge and for future generations. The MAS is made up of chapters around the state.   Each chapter meets monthly (September thru May) for a business meeting and usually a presentation is given by a guest speaker knowledgeable about archaeology.
