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
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.

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.
