Historical note:
As early as the 1950s, discussions were underway concerning the establishment of an organization dedicated to historical archaeology. In 1967, the Society for Historical Archaeology was founded at the International Conference on Historic Archaeology, which met in Dallas, Texas. The Society was incorporated in 1968 in Pennsylvania and its constitution was adopted that same year at the first annual meeting, with the stated mission of serving as "an educational organization to promote scholarly research in and dissemination of knowledge concerning historical archaeology." Its focus is "the era since the beginning of exploration of the non-European parts of the world by Europeans, with the prime concern in the western hemisphere."

The chief concerns of the society have included its annual meetings and publications. The latter are the scholarly Historical Archaeology and the Society for Historical Archaeology Newsletter, which reports developments in the society and keeps members informed of news within the field. Since the early 1970s, the society has also become increasingly concerned with the qualifications and ethical behavior of historical archeologists and with government activities to protect historical sites and to promote scientific work at them.
