The Canadian Latin-American Archaeology Society is a scholarly non-profit organization that promotes the study of the ancient civilizations of Latin America. Read more in our ABOUT US section. 



CLAAS provides Latin American archaeologists-amateur and professional-with a network of tools to keep up to date with current news from archeological sites, local exhibitions, and lectures in our RESOURCES section.


Our members are active behind the podium and in the field. Learn more about what our members have been up to in the past, opportunities for you in the the future, and how you can get involved in research now. For information on university programs, field schools, and events, including the CLAAS Speaker series visit our social media pages.


Membership in CLAAS helps fund the society and its future functions. As our society becomes more active, we encourage donations to help build a trust to allow us to host an annual conference. Learn about becoming a member in the JOIN section
