Many state archaeological societies have taken steps to try to incorporate non-professional archaeologists into excavation teams through avocational certification programs. Through these mutually beneficial programs, avid amateurs can become certified field archaeologists recognized for their accomplishments. Listed below are links to sites that may help you to find an archeological certification program. Also, you may want to check with your state archeologist, State Historic Preservation Officer , or state archaeological society for information on archaeological certification programs.

Some are having a problem signing into our shoping cart. Members and prospective Members will find here current information about our Society and its activities — present and past. Specifically, a new Calendar of Expeditions will be posted every January. The Calendar will also include information about the Society's annual meeting — usually held in November. Since some expeditions have limited enrollments and require meticulous preparation, Members are urged to confirm their participation as early as possible.

Throughout its history, the NNAS has attracted people who are interested in the archaeology and history of Norfolk. Our membership includes amateur and professional archaeologists, but the vast majority of members are simply those who are fascinated by the history, archaeology, buildings and ancient sites in the area in which they live. Norfolk Archaeology , the leading academic journal for the archaeology and history of Norfolk, is published annually and is sent free of charge to full members. Members also receive newsletters in the spring and autumn.
