Mission

The Southeast Florida Archaeological Society “SEFAS” is dedicated to: the greater understanding of archaeology, the protection and preservation of Florida’s archaeological resources and the information they contain, and the encouragement and support of archaeological research, publication and education. One very important part of the SEFAS mission to raise public awareness of archaeological resources and to disseminate information to the public on archaeology and anthropology through lectures, special events and other related activities.

SEFAS works with professional and amateur archaeologists and participates in the rescue of cultural materials from sites being disturbed or destroyed, assisting in the identification, documentation and preservation of archaeological sites in Southeast Florida.

Our Society

The Southeast Florida Archaeological Society was organized in 1996 by Sarah "Sally" McKeige, incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in 1998 and is a chapter of the Florida Anthropological Society which was founded in 1947.

SEFAS is funded by membership dues and tax deductible contributions from those interested in the protection and preservation of Florida’s archaeological resources. Strategic plans include fund raising events and seeking grants for projects.
