FAME is the distinctive voice of archaeological employers and managers, and the only organisation solely devoted to representing their interests within the profession and the business world.
Archaeological archives are frequently being held in temporary storage because too few museums or local authority stores have space, curators or requirement to accept them. FAME are working with our partners across the heritage sector to help solve the problem.
FAME sees leadership on matters of Health and Safety as a key part of its role. We are here to help our members improve their management of safety and minimise harm to their employees
As the representative of commercially-funded operators, FAME seeks to influence change within the management of the historic environment, through appropriate consultation with other sectors of the profession.
