The Pre-Columbian Society at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is a group of amateurs and professionals engaged in the study and understanding of the indigenous peoples of the Americas during the pre-Columbian era and today. Common anthropological and archeological interests center on the pre-Columbian cultures of North, Central and South America, with an emphasis on Mesoamerica (Maya, Olmec, Aztec, Mixtec, Inca, Moche, Nazca), with occasional lectures on similar interests on indigenous groups in the U.S.  Professionals in the field present their research and findings via monthly lectures.  Additionally, we have a Glyph Group that concentrates on decipherment of hieroglyphs found at various historical sites throughout Mesoamerica.

September is our traditional Society renewal month. Important! You may now choose how to receive the Codex. Please indicate your preference on your renewal: either as an immediate, storable and accessible color PDF file emailed to you, or as a hard copy picked up at a meeting or sent to you in the mail.
