Introduction

    The purpose of ECCNAA is to help preserve Nevada's antiquites, encourage the study of archaeology and to educate the public as to the aims of archaeological research. Members agree to abide by the Code of Ethics of the Nevada Archaeological Association.
    We are a group of people who have an interest in archaeology and history. The group includes professional and amateur archaeologists as well as individuals who simply want to learn more about the field.
    As a group we do many community projects. Some of the activites include: construction of the Northside School exhibit; participation in the Cold Creek archaeological excavation, the Spring Creek Mastodon excavation, the Carlin Chinese cemetery excavation, bringing in Chautauqua performers and speakers, facilitating hands-on educational workshops and arranging group field trips. We have also established a scholarship endowment at Great Basin College to assist a student in attending the Great Basin College Field School or pursuing an anthropological field of study.
