The aims of The Archaeological Society
The Archaeological Society of Finland was founded in 1982 to maintain contacts among Finnish archaeologists active in various capacities. The society aims at encouraging discussion within the discipline and strives to improve the standard of archaeological research. These aims are furthered through activities including lectures and discussions and by issuing a smaller publication, Muinaistutkija, to the membership. It is natural that work towards these aims also requires contacts on the interdisciplinary and international levels. Fennoscandia archaeologica and Monographs of the Archaeological Society of Finland are series established expressly for these purposes.
