  • Proper recording of archeological sites.
  • Respect for the fragile and non-renewable nature of archeological sites.
  • Creation of bonds between avocational and professional archeologists.
  • Development of opportunities for working with professional archeologists through directed fieldwork, analysis, and reporting.
  • Public dissemination of information about Maryland's buried heritage.
  • Publication of the results of all excavations undertaken by the Society.
In support of these goals, ASM sponsors a variety of activities, including fieldwork, publications, meetings, and events.
