The Archaeological Research Council was a committee of archaeologists based on Kallidah, the homeworld of the Kallidahin species. The council settled a research base in Polis Massa, an asteroid field that was created when a cataclysm destroyed the planet of the same name, to study the mysteries behind its destruction, and after generations of working on the project, the Kallidahin came to be mistakenly known as Polis Massans.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Archaeological Research Council was first mentioned in Star Wars: Complete Locations, a 2005 Star Wars Legends reference book that compiled Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Episode I, Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, and Inside the Worlds of Star Wars Trilogy, and included new content written by Kerrie Dougherty that covered locations from Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. It became canon when it was mentioned in Ultimate Star Wars, a reference book co written by Patricia Barr, Adam Bray, Daniel Wallace, and Ryder Windham that was released on April 28, 2015.
