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 the people of Florida from ancient times to the present.
The 15 FAS 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.
71st ANNUAL MEETING
Crystal River, May 10-12, 2019
Where were you in 1969? If we’re not mistaken, the Florida Anthropological Society (FAS) held its annual meetings and conference in Crystal River. 50 years later, let’s go back there.
For 2019, Florida Public Archaeology Network’s Central Region and the Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society are honored to co-host the 71st Annual Meeting of FAS. The meeting will take place in the Manatee Capital of the World, Crystal River. The Plantation on Crystal River will serve as the Conference hotel and the location for organizational meetings and conference proceedings from May 10 to 12, 2019.
The Florida Anthropological Society includes 15 chapters around the state that provide opportunities for public engagement in archaeology and anthropology.
