For more than 30 years, the Archeological Society of Maryland, Inc. has aggressively supported a strong publications program. Today, the Society's publications take three basic forms:
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.
Maryland Archeology, ASM's biannual journal. Professional and avocational archeologists, alike, use the journal to report the latest findings in Maryland archeology. Recent articles have covered topics such as:
Bone and Antler Tools from a 15th Century Indian Village in Frederick
