Annual Meeting

Registration for the 2020 Annual Meeting is now open! The virtual event will still feature the many academic paper sessions, workshops, colloquia, roundtables, exhibit hall, and other events that are part of our in-person meeting.

International Archaeology Day

IAD 2020 was a celebration unlike any other in the ten-year history of the program. The AIA’s largest outreach initiative usually features hundreds of in-person archaeological activities, but celebrating IAD in the middle of a pandemic necessitated a complete rethinking of the program. This year we turned our focus from in-person events to mostly virtual ones. We would like to thank all our collaborators who displayed incredible creativity and resourcefulness in providing IAD programs and activities.
