Founded in 1947, the main objective of the Florida Anthropological Society (FAS) is to provide a formal means by which individuals interested in anthropological and archaeological studies in the State of Florida, may come together. 

FAS embraces and encourages the study of Florida from ancient times to the present.

Our Chapters and their members strive to bring attention to the ongoing need for preservation of archaeological and historical sites.

Through special events, chapter meetings, speaker presentations, public education programs, and the Society’s professional publications, FAS educates the public about the people, places, and cultures of the past in Florida.

Membership in the Florida Anthropological Society supports public education initiatives statewide including an annual conference, student grants, Florida Archaeology Month materials, and so much more.  Join us today and start receiving a quarterly E-newsletter and The Florida Anthropologist, our illustrated peer review journal!
