About Us

The Archaeology Society of Staten Island was formed in 1962 at Wagner College in Staten Island, NY. In 1963, the Society began a series of lectures that have brought prominent scholars in the various fields of archaeology and anthropology to Staten Island. The Society affiliated with the Archaeological Institute of America in 1964 as The Staten Island Society, AIA.

The objectives of the Society are:

  • To promote study, exploration, and research in the field of archaeology
