About FaF - in English
The Association of Archaeologists (in Denmark)
FaF is the short form for Foreningen af Fagarkæologer - in English: The association of archaeologists. FaF was founded in 1997.
It is a member-organization where anyone with minimum a BA degree in archaeology can become a member. The degrees can be in prehistoric -, medieval- , classical- and near eastern archaeology. We come from all branches and sectors of archaeology – persons in leading positions, researchers, curators, persons doing rescue excavations, heritage management and unemployed people – and some of our members have found jobs far away from the archaeological profession.
FaF is the only organization that embraces all archaeologists in Denmark.
We want to create a collegial atmosphere that promotes social and professional networks for archaeologists. We want to give archaeologist a platform and a framework for discussions of academic and political significance for our profession.
All in all, we want to be an asset to our profession and be actively involved in its development.
