Council for West Virginia Archaeology

About the Council

We are professional archaeologists working in West Virginia or with research interests here. Nearly all of us are associated with government agencies or the consulting firms that do much of the actual exploration and excavation required by Federal law (usually called Section 106 compliance).
Executive Board Our three Officers and three Directors make up the Executive Board. Here is a little about them.
History Why we formed, what we have done.
Bylaws A reference for members
Membership How to apply for membership
We built this web page to grow and become a resource for understanding the people who made the prehistory and history of West Virginia. We hope you will return periodically, and as you do, you will find new material for quite some time.

Late Prehistoric toy pot, Marmet Locks and Dam site, c. 15th century AD Expect to find original material, obscure older pieces, links to sites and articles of special value, and some unique features that will prove helpful to everyone with a curiosity about past life in these mountains.
