Northwest Chapter of the Iowa Archeological Society








The Northwest Chapter

The Northwest Chapter is a branch of the Iowa Archeological Society, and members are pledged to support and further the aims and purposes of the parent organization. Both were established by interested Iowans for the study and preservation of the prehistory and early historic heritage of the state. Their goals are to further archaeological knowledge and to gather, record, and publish information of remains including sites, data, and artifacts, for the benefit of future generations of Iowans and scientists. Membership is open to anyone interested in supporting these objectives.
