Pensacola Archaeological Society
The Pensacola Archaeological Society, PAS, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization made up of people of all ages with an interest in archaeology, and represents Pensacola and the Northwest Florida Panhandle. The Society has about 100 members, and they come from diverse backgrounds, but all have an interest in preserving, protecting and studying our past cultures through archaeological investigations and the historical record.
We work closely with the Archaeology Institute at the University of West Florida and furnish volunteer workers for many of their field and lab projects. Members also participate in public archaeology projects in the Panhandle of Northwest Florida in cooperation with the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN), Northwest Region. These events include the Florida Archaeology Month celebrations held each year during March, Archaeology Day events, and lab activities throughout the year.
PAS members meet in the downstairs meeting room at the J. Earle Bowden Building at 120 Church Street at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month, September-March. The April meeting is a BBQ at a different location. There are no membership meetings May-August.
