Please read the Code of Ethics before you complete the form below. 


Code of Ethics of the Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society

1. Membership in the Society shall be denied to any person who violates accepted standards of archaeological 

conduct as set forth by federal, state and local laws and regulations.


2. A member must be keenly aware that an archaeological site contains evidence of specific human activities and 

is a unique source of data about past socio-cultural behavior. All sites deserve professional quality excavation, 

analysis and publication.


3. A member will not participate in uncontrolled archaeological work, but will seek to aid and assist the trained 

members in furtherance of excavation, laboratory work, research, analysis and reporting. The Society will 

assist in the on-going training of members.


4. The practices of buying and selling archaeological materials for personal satisfaction or financial gain, and the 

indiscriminate excavation of archaeological sites are contrary to the objectives and goals of the Society.


5. A member should report all illicit and illegal activities, such as unauthorized digging or looting of sites, and all 

sites threatened with destruction by natural or other causes.
