Who We Are

The Midwestern Epigraphy Society (MES) is a public educational organization that promotes the study and research of epigraphy, languages, alphabets, antiquities, and diffusion of the cultures of the world as it particularly applies to pre-Columbian contacts with the Americas. MES uses sources found in libraries, museums, obscure books and journals, manuscripts, plus new discoveries in archaeology and associated scientific fields.

MES welcomes people with casual interest in these subjects as well as those pursuing more scholastic goals. Many members are specialists in specific areas and share it with the club. So, you can find your own rewarding niche in MES!
