Field Notes

Each month FIELD NOTES highlights the archaeological field work from the Illinois State Archaeological Survey’s field stations.


Did you know that ISAS is the largest archaeological research and compliance organization in the United States? Or that we are curating 12 million artifacts (pottery sherds, animal bones, flint chips, fire-cracked rocks, stone tools, botanicals, etc.)? Learn this and more in our 2022 Annual Report.
