More about us…

The non-profit organization Fédération des Archéologues de Wallonie (FAW) incorporates the archaeological societies and associations of Wallonia and Brussels. Its aim is to bring about a greater appreciation and understanding of the archaeological heritage of Wallonia and Brussels.
Its function is to direct the work of voluntary researchers and to provide scientific assistance to their archaeological reports for publication in its annual magazine Vie archéologique.
It also offers the help of a graphic artist to produce illustrations which may be required for use in such articles. The FAW undertakes and supports educational initiatives intended to raise public awareness of issues concerning the protection and study of our cultural heritage, which are covered in the monthly publication Va Info.
Besides close collaboration between its members, the FAW promotes contacts between official institutions and volunteer archaeologists. Its documentation centre is open to all.
Since 1993, a successful collaboration with the Service public de Wallonie has enabled us to continue with the development of the Bibliographie de l’Archéologie en Wallonie, a fundamental tool for researchers.
The FAW continues to extend its services, helping to catalogue archaeological items brought to the museums of member societies, within the context of the AICIM plan, initiated by the Ministry of the French Community.
With its specialized conservation laboratory, the FAW also offers invaluable scientific support for the study of excavated artefacts, their long term conservation and their permanent display in museums.
