Delaware Archaeology Month is sponsored by the Archaeological Society of Delaware which was founded in 1933 by amateur and professional archaeologists to study and appreciate archaeology, and more recently, historic preservation. The organization’s mission is to educate both its members and the public about archaeology, to support professional archaeological investigations, to report on activity within Delaware and the surrounding region and to promote interest and participation in archaeology and related activities.
