The New York Archaeological Council (NYAC) was founded to raise awareness of archaeology and archaeological issues of New York State: to provide information of general interest on the history and prehistory of New York as well as about the field of archaeology that provides insight into that history, to provide educational resources about archaeology, to provide information on the conduct of professional archaeology in New York, to serve as a point of reference for anyone that needs to consider archaeological resources in compliance with various laws and regulations that often come into play during construction projects, and to increase the awareness of New York Archaeology to the general public.
The New York State Archaeological Association (NYSAA) is composed of avocational and professional archaeologists primarily within New York State, though some of its members can be found throughout the world. NYSAA stands to promote archaeological and historical study, and research covering the artifacts, rites, customs, beliefs and other phases of the lives and cultures of the American Indian occupants of New York State up to and including their contact with the Europeans. Recently, the Association has expanded its focus to include research upon Euro-American archaeological sites post-dating European Contact.
News & Announcements
- CNEHA June Newsletter
If you have any new information to share about Historical Archaeology projects in New York State please write a brief summary and I will get it into the Council for Northeast Historical Archaeology Newsletter. Please email copy to Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org. The general guidelines are below and the current deadline for submissions is Friday May 22th. This is a great opportunity to highlight the excellent work being done in the state.
a. Photographs should be included as separate attachments, rather than embedded in your text. (That’s so our layout person doesn’t have to keep “undoing” what you have already done!)
b. All photographs need to have captions.
c. If you submit more than 3 or 4 illustrations with any individual article, please recognize that we may have to reduce the number.
d. There always will be a few submissions that truly are of “article” length, rather than newsletter length. While it’s flattering that folks want to submit very “thorough” summaries of their research to us, we probably should shoot for an absolute maximum of no more than 2-3 pages (double-spaced) for any given submission.
e. All text should be submitted in 12pt Times New Roman font.
