AIM Journal

Archaeology in Montana journal is a biannual publication sponsored by the Montana Archaeological Society. The primary purpose of the journal is to publish the results of archaeological research in Montana. The publication serves as a bridge between interested amateurs with professional attitudes towards archaeology and professionals who realize the value of cooperative participation by amateurs.
