Welcome to Swiss Archaeology
Swiss Archaeology is an association with approximately 2,000 members in all language areas of Switzerland, two thirds of which are archaeology enthusiasts, one third professionals.
Swiss Archaeology aims to give archaeology enthusiasts an opportunity to become better informed while also promoting archaeological research in Switzerland.
Swiss Archaeology as an organisation has the right - based on the nature and heritage protection laws - to object to planning and construction projects.
The association was founded in 1907 as the «Swiss Society of Prehistory» and in the mid-1960s became the «Swiss Society of Prehistory and Archaeology». In 2006 it was renamed «Swiss Archaeology».
