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 75 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 November/December 2023 issue of ARCHAEOLOGY features a Roman noblewoman’s defiant devotion to an Egyptian goddess. Other stories include the discovery of a Roman holiday calendar, reconstructing a Neolithic necklace, and identifying the Benin Bronzes’ secret ingredient.
The AJA has set the standard for respected scholarship of Mediterranean archaeology since 1885. The October 2023 issue contains articles examining a Bronze Age ivory pyxis, Cretan cups and the emergence of the polis, a quarry on Tenos, Gallic garment decoration, a bust of a Roman centurion, and glass furnaces in Romania. Open-access content includes a study of the suburbs of Ur, a review of an exhibition at the Melbourne Museum, and a letter from the Book Reviews Editor.
Explore the world of archaeology with the Archaeological Institute of America’s “A Year of Archaeology” calendar. Each month of the 2023 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.
