About the Narragansett Society
The Narragansett Society is an active branch of the Archaeological Institute of America, which aims to expand archaeological knowledge and appreciation of the ancient world through a wide variety of lectures and events open to the public.
This local society of the AIA was originally founded in 1908 as the Rhode Island Society and renamed the Providence Society in 1936.
It has been called The Narragansett Society since 1982.
Each year the Narragansett Society organizes a number of social events and a lecture series comprised of archaeologists from around the country. Lectures generally take place at 6:30 pm in Rhode Island Hall (60 George Street, Providence, RI), but please double-check the schedule in case of changes in time or venue.
The officers of the Narragansett society assume the various administrative and organizational duties that allow it to function. Please do not hesitate to contact them with any questions, concerns or suggestions in regard to any aspects of the society.
