Administrative History

The University Archaeological Society was formed in 1949 as an official adjunct to the Brigham Young University Department of Archaeology. In 1967 the society was renamed the Society for Early Historical Archaeology (SEHA). The mission of the society was to help the Department of Archaeology (later the Department of Anthropology) by doing some things which a regular academic department might have difficulty dealing with directly: promoting research on scriptural archaeology and giving publicity on a non-technical level to discoveries in this field. In 1979 SEHA became independent of BYU.
