We Preserve and Teach Long Island’s Cultural History

The Suffolk County Archaeological Association has been teaching about the rich cultural history of our region for more than 40 years. We are dedicated to educating the local community by providing accurate information about our region’s archaeology and ethnohistory.


What We Do

Our organization serves as an advocate for the protection and preservation of endangered archaeological sites and local artifacts. We help the public identify these and curate them for future generations. Our programs and publications further help inform the public about Long Island’s cultural history.


Educational Programs for Students

Our nonprofit educational programs let people experience the technologies of the early colonists and the lifestyles of the Native Americans of the time. We hope that these hands-on programs help educate the public about our region’s archaeology and ethnohistory.


Our mission

Our mission is simple: We strive to make a difference.

Educating the public about the preservation of existing sites. Working with scholars  and professionals to further the preservation of new and existing achaeological sites. To publish scholarly works pertaining to Long Island Archaeology and History.
