 Entire back issues as well as individual articles of Journal of Middle Atlantic Archaeology are available as pdfs.


Think of the paper that you were going to present at the spring archaeology meeting. With so many public events being curtailed, postponed, or cancelled, now would be a good time to make it into a manuscript to submit for publication. Journal of Middle Atlantic Archaeology is now accepting manuscripts for volume 37 for 2021. Contact the editor, Roger Moeller. Publication guidelines


Dear MAAC Membership,

After much deliberation and discussion it is with profound sadness that the Executive Board has voted to cancel this years MAAC.  We have been contacted by numerous members who have said that they or their company or university have cancelled all travel for employees, faculty and students. I have even been told not to travel to any conferences. The Board feels that this will only increase daily and that we would rather have a well attended, stress-free conference, than not.


In the coming days the Board will be working on refunding everyones meeting registration fees. You will be recieving an email telling you how the refund will happen. All members will be contacted about this decision and it will also be posted on social media and the MAAC website.


The Board will also be discussing whether to reschedule the conference later in the year. I hope all of you understand that this decision was based on the health and well being of all of our membership.

MAAC’s statement on supporting a regional approach to sea level rise and the threat to coastal archaeological resources

The MAAC Meeting Student Scholarship Fund has been established to pay registration and membership fees for student participants at the annual meeting. More details


We meet annually, in early spring, for three days of papers, discussion groups, special workshops, our business meeting, and, of course, a party to catch up on what all our colleagues have been doing for the past year!

Anyone interested in the archaeology of the area from New York to Virginia, and from the Atlantic coast to West Virginia, is welcome. You do not have to be a member to register for the conference and hear about the latest of a wide variety of archaeological sites dating from the earliest Paleo-Indian sites to 20th-century sites, and of all site types, from small single-use Native American procurement sites and large village sites, to historic period urban, rural, industrial, diverse ethnic and immigrant sites, and underwater sites. Come join us!

Mission Statement

To provide a yearly conference and a professional journal for archaeologists, both avocational and professional, working in the Middle Atlantic area: a place to meet, discuss problems and issues, present recent work, and socialize with our colleagues.
