  • Elizabeth Crowell of the Fairfax County Park Authority receives the 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award from Middle Atlantic Archaeological Conference president Douglas Sanford in a March 2017 ceremony.  March 2018 Sun Gazette article

Currently, we present two archaeology meetings each year:

  • FOFA Spring Symposium at Gunston Hall 3 March 2018 has been postponed because Gunston Hall has experienced a power outage -- possibly due to the high winds blowing through Fairfax County on 2 March (gusts approaching 70 mph).  "Sites in Peril: Environmental and Other Challenges in Archaeology" will be rescheduled.
  • Approximately 40 people heard Dr. Stephen R. Potter talk on Bison in the East: A Story of Pigs, People, and Pigeons at the FOFA annual meeting on 18 November 2017 held at Frying Pan Park.

Please join FOFA today!

FOFA was established in 2010 to support the understanding and appreciation of Fairfax County's archaeology, artifacts and museum objects, and historic buildings.

Everyone is invited to attend our general membership meetings. See FOFA's Events for the latest info about which archaeologist is speaking, and when!

FOFA encourages its members to volunteer their time. So whether you're interested in being outdoors digging, or indoors processing artifacts or documenting museum objects, check out the Volunteer Opportunities.

Keep up on what's the latest with FOFA by following us on Facebook, and by reading The Scoop (FOFA's e-newsletter).
