AIA Troop Lectures
The Archaeological Institute of America implemented a program in 2005 to educate troops en route to Iraq and Afghanistan on the archaeology, history and cultural heritage of the region.
Cultural Heritage by AIA-Military Panel (CHAMP)
CHAMP is dedicated to improving awareness among deploying military personnel regarding the culture and history of local communities in host countries and war zones. Education and training of military personnel is a critical step in preserving and safeguarding historical sites and cultural artifacts and will promote greater understanding and improved relations with local communities.
DNA research from the AIA-supported site of Hoyo Negro makes important connections between the earliest settlers of the Americas and modern Native Americans.
