The Edinburgh Archaeological Field Society (EAFS).

The Society, which exists to foster an interest in archaeology and which encourages members to play an active part in the discipline, was founded in 1971 as the East of Scotland Archaeological Association. In 1975, on becoming affiliated to the Council for British Archaeology, the name was changed to the Edinburgh Archaeological Field Society (EAFS). This affiliation in due course became an affiliation to the Council for Scottish Archaeology. The inclusion of the word ‘Field’ in the name reflects the Society’s intention of maintaining an active involvement with fieldwork in its various forms. for more click here
