The Society Archaeology Switzerland (until 2005: Swiss Society of Prehistory and Archaeology SSPA) - founded in 1907 - is a society made up of members from all four language regions of Switzerland. Around half of these are archaeology enthusiasts from all walks of life, the remainder are specialists, students and corporate bodies.
The society promotes public and official awareness of Swiss archaeology as well as the research of the archaeological sources in Switzerland.
It advocates the preservation and protection of archaeological monuments and carries out archaeological projects in close collaboration with cantons, universities, academies and various institutions and societies.
Besides the annual review, the society publishes its quarterly journal “as. - archäologie schweiz” (as. - archaeology switzerland) as well as other publications and also organises numerous events.
