Website and/or Calendar Links
The Illinois State Archaeological Survey's mission is to investigate, preserve and interpret the archaeological heritage of Illinois within the contexts of long-term public needs and economic development through our scientific research, landscape preservation, public service, education, and outreach activities.
To serve as the principal repository and source of scientifically-based information and research on the archaeological resources of the state and to proactively utilize this knowledge to assist Illinois' citizens, communities, and institutions in making informed decisions on heritage interpretation, management, and preservation.
The Illinois State Archaeological Survey (ISAS), established February 1, 2010 as a Division of the Institute of Natural Resource Sustainability, is the product of a nearly century long concern by the University of Illinois to ensure the preservation and interpretation of the state's important archaeological resources.
