Organisation for Archaeology alumni
In 2016 alumni of the Faculty of Archaeology organised themselves in ALFA: the Alumni Leiden Faculty of Archaeology community .
ALFA aims to strengthen the ties between alumni and the Leiden Archaeology Faculty by organising annual social meetings, issuing newsletters, maintaining a website and supporting promising research by young archaeologists.
Everyone who graduated, studied or worked at (one of the precursors of) the Archaeology Department/Faculty of Leiden University, qualifies as a potential member of ALFA.
