Constitution and By-laws of The Central States Archaeological Society
Your Central States Archaeological Journal is more
than just a magazine, more than the leading archaeological publication
in the United States.
It is the voice of you -- the members. It is your means of reporting that important site or discovery that you have made. Too often a great discovery is not reported and the information and history are lost forever. Perhaps the piece you found might be the missing link that some professional archaeologist is looking for. It could be the direct tie-in to another report that is more important than you realize. Use your Journal by sending good clear photographs and reports to your Editor-in-Chief.
