Home About us

The Indian Archaeological Society was formed and registered in the year 1967 at Varanasi as a non-governmental, non-profit making  professional organization of archaeologists. The Society was founded by Prof. A.K. Narain, late Prof. Sankalia and other eminent Indologists and archaeologists of the country.
     As is with all organizations the initial growth of the society was rather slow with a score or more members, and with limited academic activities. As years passed by and within a quarter century membership rose enormously and today the society boasts of more than 700 Life members both individual and Institutional members on its rolls.
Indian Archaeological Society is a registered (under the Societies Registration Act 21 (2) of 1860) educational and charitable Institution.
