The joint conference of the NYSAA and NYAC will take place on April 21-23, 2017. The Adirondack Chapter is proud to host the 101st Annual Meeting of the New York State Archaeological Association (NYSAA) and the annual Spring Meeting of the New York Archaeological Council (NYAC).
All conference events will be held at the beautiful Fort William Henry Hotel and Conference Center, located on Canada Street in the Village of Lake George.

2017 Conference Features
2017 Conference Registration Caves, Paintings and Carvings: The Paleolithic of Southern France
The next Morgan Chapter lecture will be held at the Siegel Center, Pittsford, NY, March 4th at 1 PM. Doug Pippin will speak about Paleolithic cave art in the Dordogne Valley. The destination for this trip was Les Eyzies de Tayac, a small town in the Vézère Valley. In 1868, the remains of Cro-Magnon were discovered during the excavation of a railroad line serving the town. The town remains one of the key archaeological destinations in Europe today, and is home to the National Museum of Prehistory.
The Morgan chapter journal, The Iroquoian, began in 1981, as an opportunity for chapter members and others to share their love for archaeology and interest in the archaeology and history of the upstate New York area.
