When you join the Archaeological Institute of America, you’ll be joining a group of individuals passionate about archaeology, protecting the world’s cultural heritage, and disseminating archaeological research.
The AIA is North America's largest and oldest nonprofit organization dedicated to archaeology. The Institute advances awareness, education, fieldwork, preservation, publication, and research of archaeological sites and cultural heritage throughout the world. Your contribution makes a difference.
ARCHAEOLOGY has been published continuously for more than 70 years by the Archaeological Institute of America, which is dedicated to supporting archaeological inquiry and to fostering the pursuit of knowledge about human heritage. The July/August 2022 issue of ARCHAEOLOGY tells the story of the highly skilled workers who helped build Egypt’s Great Pyramid. Other stories include uncovering a Roman currency crisis, the discovery of the oldest Maya calendar, sailing in Sumer, and reuniting pieces of an ancient friendship bracelet.
The AJA, one of the world’s most respected journals devoted to Mediterranean archaeology, has set the standard for archaeological scholarship since 1885. The July 2022 issue contains articles examining the Tomb of the Bulls in Tarquinia, depictions of Amazons in Hellenized Anatolia, and charcoal graffiti at Herculaneum, as well as a field report on settlement patterns in the Erbil Plain. Open access content includes a discussion of a Roman oil lamp excavated at Jamestown, Virginia; an updated overview of the evidence for winemaking in Italy; and a letter from our Museum Reviews Editor.
Explore the world of archaeology with the Archaeological Institute of America’s “A Year of Archaeology” calendar. Each month of the 2022 calendar features an archaeological photo from the AIA’s Photo Contest. All proceeds benefit the AIA’s Site Preservation Program.
Follow an excavation project as it happens. Interactive Digs are an opportunity to see an excavation unfold in real time. Archaeologists post regular updates from the field, answer questions, and describe life on a dig.
Travel with an engaging and informative AIA Tours lecturer, plus trip managers and local guides. Each well-paced itinerary offers ample time at each site. By traveling on an AIA Tour you directly support the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) while personally gaining the benefit of the AIA’s network of scholars and worldwide contacts.
