Stay Current with Society Publications Disseminating knowledge is a vital part of the Society's mission. All members receive The Minnesota Archaeologist, an annual journal containing illustrated articles on ancient Native American culture, the history of European settlement and the latest archaeological techniques. MnArch, found in the libraries of dozens of respected cultural institutions in the U.S. and Canada, has been continuously published since 1936. The MAS Newsletter and regular mailings keep you informed about current digs and research projects, volunteer opportunities, upcoming lectures and field trips, and the activities of fellow members. The Society also publishes books on Ojibway and Dakota culture, major excavations, archaeological methodology and other topics.   Downloads MN Archaeologist 1935-1989 CD/DVD Order Form  MN Archaeologist 1935-2005 Flash Drive Order Form Please contact Kent Bakken with questions or submissions to MnArch. 2010 MNArch Table of Contents 2009 MNArch Table of Contents 2008 MNArch Table of Contents 2003 MNArch Table of Contents  Author-Title Index of All Minnesota Archaeologist Articles Thanks to the hard work of MAS member Randy Blasus, we are able to provide here a new index of all our journal articles, stretching from 1939 through 2010. Everyone should take a look at it, even if you are not involved in research, just to get a feel for the scope of these publications and gain an appreciation for the work that the Minnesota Archaeological Society has fostered for over seventy years. Without our publishing efforts, so much would have been lost.  We hope you enjoy your trip through our archives and that it will stimulate your imagination and fire your energy for more and better research in the future.
