Friends of Archaeology

You don’t have to be a scientist to experience the fascinating archaeology of New Mexico and the greater Southwest. Your free membership* in Friends of Archaeology (FOA) is your opportunity to dig deep into the past while supporting the Office of Archaeological Studies.

From exploring the ancient worlds of La Bajada Pueblo or Casas Grandes, to learning about the specialized science of archaeomagnetic dating, to hands-on demonstrations of yucca-fiber weaving, FOA activities educate members about past civilizations, lost technologies and other topics that distinguish the region’s unique geography and cultural diversity. FOA members enjoy exclusive invitations to interact with archaeologists in an annual series of stimulating statewide field trips, lectures, volunteer fieldwork and other archaeology-focused activities.
