Excavation and Survey Opportunities
Over many years, MAS members have participated in carefully coordinated, scientific excavations that made significant contributions to understanding at several important sites.
This page is updated as new opportunities become available.
Archaeological Survey Training Program
The Missouri Archaeological Society in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District and the Center for Archaeological Research at Missouri State University is pleased to offer a survey training program.
The program is free to all participants and involves the training of members of the interested public. A refundable deposit of $30 will be required at the time of registration. This deposit is to hold a place and will be refunded at the beginning of the session, should the individual participate. The deposit will not be refunded to those who sign up, but don’t participate, with exceptions for extenuating circumstances.
The program will allow participation by individuals as young as 12 years of age. However, a legally responsible adult must accompany those of 12–17 years of age. Each session is limited to 20 participants.
The 2017 session location and dates will be announced soon. The 2016 sessions were held at Wappapello Lake in southeast Missouri.
