    Click here to view back issues of ASM Ink. ASM Ink , the Society's newsletter. Mailed monthly, this 8- to 12-page newsletter keeps every member of the Society abreast of the latest archeological news in Maryland...field and lab projects needing volunteers...upcoming meetings, workshops, and talks...Chapter news...legislation and other action affecting archeology...and much, much more. Since March 2002 the newsletter has been available to ASM members on-line. The ASM Board of Directors recently decided to make it available to the general public through this website. Click on the ASM Ink icon above to view current and past issues of ASM Ink. Items for the newsletter should be directed to the Editor, Myron Beckenstein.
