The Near East Archaeological Society (NEAS) was founded in 1957 to facilitate the involvement of evangelical Christians in research in the lands of the Bible. Society members view the Bible as an inspired ancient text which can be illuminated and clarified by properly conducted and interpreted archaeological research.
Members are invited to participate in the annual meeting of the society which provides a program of informational papers and reports, as well as the opportunity to participate in NEAS business affairs. For convenience, NEAS meets each November in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS).
The Near East Archaeological Society is a registered 501(c)3 charitable organization under EIN #36-6116770. All donations are charitable and tax deductible as allowed by law. For legal questions, please see a tax advisor for more information.
