Chicago Archaeological Society

The Chicago Archaeological Society (CAS) is a chapter of the IAAA, founded to unite all persons interested in the archaeology of Illinois – amateurs, professionals, students, and educators. The purposes of the association are preserving prehistoric and historic archaeological sites, information, and artifacts; encouraging and participating in scientific investigations and research; and fostering constructive public and governmental attitudes toward the archaeology of the State of Illinois and contiguous regions. The association and its members are opposed to the destruction, unauthorized excavation, or looting of archaeological sites and actively discourage commercialism in archaeological artifacts.

The CAS, except for November and May, meets at the Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Avenue, Evanston at 3:00 p.m. on the last Sunday of September, October, January, February, March, and April. The winter meeting is held on the first Sunday of December and the May meeting on the Sunday preceding the Memorial Day weekend.
