Utah is rich in archaeological
heritage. From Danger Cave, one of the oldest habitation
sites in North America, to a little studied contact point
of Fremont and Anasazi cultures in Grand Staircase Escalante
National Monument, opportunities abound for an exciting, challenging
experience in prehistory.
The Utah Statewide Archaeological Society (USAS)
is an organization conceived for the individual who is curious
about or wants to learn more about archaeology and the states
prehistoric cultures. It is dedicated to the study and preservation
of Utahs past.
USAS had its beginnings when Dr. Jesse Jennings
organized the Statewide Archaeological Survey in 1951. Today
we are a group of 300 individuals dedicated to learning about
and preserving our heritage.
