NZ’s ARCHAEOLOGY may be short in timespan by old world standards but New Zealand has a rich heritage of archaeological sites which illustrate its history.

OUR OBJECTIVES are to promote and foster research into the archaeology of New Zealand.

WE PUBLISH two periodicals and other monographs about New Zealand and the Pacific.

WE LOBBY Government and Local Government for the protection of New Zealand's cultural heritage.
