Welcome to the Louisiana Archaeological Society

Investigating - Interpreting - Preserving the Past

The 2021 annual meeting will be postponed. Given the time involved in planning and the uncertainty of COVID-19 spread, we cannot commit to having an in-person meeting at this time. We are hopeful that by postponing, we will be able to host the event at a later date.

Meet our officers!
