The Canberra Archaeological Society was formed in 1963 to cater for the needs of all people interested in archaeology. Monthly meetings are held at the Australian National University, with guest speakers talking on a range of topics from Australian prehistory to historical archaeology and classical studies. The Society is an Associate Member of the Federation of Australian Historical Societies.
Members have the opportunity to join in field work involving both site recording and excavation. No experience is necessary as training on the job is provided; enthusiasm is the only requirement and the aim is to enjoy the time in the field.
If you wish to become a member, simply download our membership form, fill it in, and send it in to us with your payment.

Springbank Archaeology Project
Do you live in Canberra and have an interest in local history/ archaeology? Do you want to experience archaeology? If so join our team in a quest to find Springbank Homestead. Now in the middle of Lake Burley Griffin the site of this 19th century residence literally saw the first European settlement of Canberra. A Canberra Archaeology Society and ANU initiative, funded by ACT Heritage, now plans to survey and excavate the site to uncover European and non-European stories of this area. We hope you will join our group and should you wish add stories, documents to this page. You may then wish to join us on the island when excavations begin. It's your project Canberra!Follow the project on Facebook View the invitation on Youtube
