Since 1934, the Society has published research about Missouri and regional archaeology. Copies of many of these older publications are still available; select out-of-print publications may be available. Publications include:

The MAS is pleased to announce the release of our newest Special Publication: Projectile Point Types in Missouri and Portions of Adjacent States by Jack H. Ray. The book is a product of more than 20 years of research in Missouri and surrounding states and features line drawings by artists Linda S. Ellis and Howard Del Thompson. This 208-page spiral-bound book will be an essential lab manual for the libraries of professional and avocational archaeologists alike. List price for the general public is $35, but it is available to members of the Missouri Archaeological Society for the reduced price of $25. To order, please use this form and enclose $6 for standard shipping charges.
