Benefits of Membership 

Anyone living in South Africa will be able to take part in the activities of local branches.  There are four branches: Northern Branch, Western Cape Branch, KwaZulu-Natal Branch and Trans-!Gariep Branch.  You will automatically receive notices and newsletters from your nearest branch.  Branches have active and enthusiastic members.   Branches organise regular lectures, seminars, visits to a wide range of archaeological sites and local and overseas tours.
