The Nevada Archaeological Association (NAA) is celebrating 50 years of supporting the shared interests of archaeologists, rock art scholars, anthropologists, and avocationalists! Sadly, last year’s meeting was cancelled, but that just means more planning time for a wonderful celebration!

The meeting will highlight archaeological research concerning prehistoric and historic topics of Nevada, with a particular focus on central Nevada and 50 years of NAA.
