SOMERSET CHAPTER No. 20
SOCIETY FOR PENNSYLVANIA ARCHAEOLOGY

ARCHAEOLOGY is the study of men and women based on the material evidence left behind. Depending on the time period involved, this evidence may be lithic, pottery, and other artifacts, or even written records.

THE SOCIETY FOR PENNSYLVANIA ARCHAEOLOGY, INC. (SPA) was established in 1929 through the efforts of individuals who recognized the importance of Pennsylvania's archaeological heritage. The SPA's stated goals include the following: the promotion of the scientific study of archaeological resources in Pennsylvania; the conservation of archaeological sites, artifacts, and information; the dissemination of archaeological knowledge; and the exchange of information between amateur and professional archaeologists.
