Who is PPC/CAS? We are a group of people who care about archaeology, anthropology, and history. While some of our members are professional archaeologists or historians, many of us are amateurs who are eager to expand our knowledge. In fact, we love to learn – and we love to explore!
The Colorado Archaeological Society (CAS) was founded in 1935 by C.T. Hurst of Gunnison. Today, CAS has several chapters statewide, including the Pikes Peak Chapter (PPC), which was chartered in 1983.
Chartered in 1983, our chapter recently celebrated its 35th anniversary! We welcome anyone who is interested in archaeology, anthropology, and history. Note that membership in the Pikes Peak Chapter is concurrent with membership in the Colorado Archaeological Society.

Our monthly programs are held on the third Tuesday of each month, except July and December.

Plan to stay a few minutes after the presentation to enjoy refreshments and socializing.
