The Voice of Commercial Archaeology

What we do

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.

We represent employers of one in three archaeological practitioners across the UK. Our membership includes around 50 archaeological practices, from small consultancies to the largest contractors, from commercial companies, universities and local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales.

How it started

We started life in 1975 as the Standing Conference of Archaeological Unit Managers, before changing our name to FAME in 2008, to reflect more closely our purpose and membership.

Vision

To strive for a business environment where archaeological organizations can operate safely and sustainably, the well-being of employees is prioritised and archaeologists feel empowered to build careers and expertise, so that collectively we can conserve and advance knowledge of the past for the benefit of society.
