About Us

Who We Are

We range from professional to avocational to “armchair” archaeologists – anyone who shares an interest in (and a respect for) the people who have preceded us. The SAAA, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1985, is the regional chapter of the Florida Anthropological Society.

What We Do

  • Offer monthly public lectures concerning local, national and international topics 

  • Organize member field trips to archaeological and historic sites

  • Publish a quarterly newsletter that highlights recent excavations or research in Northeast Florida.

  • Offer educational outreach to schools, community and civic groups.

  • Assist professional archaeologists excavations and assist in processing artifacts
