Stanford AIA Society Pairs with the Stanford Cantor Arts Center for Specialized Gallery Tours
December 11, 2012
As part of National Archaeology Day, the Stanford AIA Society hosted a series of lecture tours of the Stanford Museum Collections. Talks focused on Egyptian, Classical, Asian and African cultures. Many of the attendees were new to the museum, while others were museum visitors that joined the group. One highlight was the afternoon sun illuminating the Qing Dynasty jades from behind, a magical moment that emphasized why jade has been prized throughout history.
Volunteers are needed to monitor the translations of the International Archaeology Day webpage.
After two years of great success, National Archaeology Day will change to International Archaeology Day for 2013.
The Friends of the Office of State Archaeology in Connecticut acted as a participating partner in National Archaeology Day by sponsoring an Archaeology Fair.
