The Archaeological Associates of Greenwich (AAG) was founded in 1975 after a “Day of Archaeology” proved there was great interest in the subject in suburban Connecticut and New York. AAG
organizes and sponsors the Prehistoric People Project which reaches over 1,000 students each year with an educational program in prehistory.
The organization offers at least six lectures a year by prominent speakers in all archaeological fields: prehistory, Old World, New World, ancient, medieval, colonial and native American.
It publishes the AAG News which keeps members informed of lectures, classes, symposia, meetings, archaeological travel programs and digging opportunities and books with archaeological /historical themes..
The organization acts as a clearing house for archaeological information in the Greenwich area, cooperating with Community Answers, the Voluntary Action Center, the Bruce Museum, public and private schools and senior centers.
It provides speakers and assembly programs to schools and community organizations on a wide range of archaeological subjects.
AAG maintains its budget through membership dues and fees from schools to the Prehistoric People Project.
