In August of 2019, FAME commented on a draft of a discussion paper for The Archaeology Forum. Yesterday, some parts of this discussion paper was published in the Society of Antiquaries of London’s manifesto on the ‘Future of Archaeology’. This included wording that could be read as FAME having had input into the manifesto. That is not the case, our comments on a different document did not have an impact on the content of the manifesto. We never commented on the manifesto, the contents of the draft discussion paper was very different and not presented as a manifesto. Our commenting on any such documents is never an endorsement of them, unless we explicitly do so and attach our logo.
