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 Magazine

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 May/June 2024 issue of ARCHAEOLOGY features excavations of the locales where Alexander the Great spent his youth. Other stories include the discovery of the world’s first lipstick, exploring life in a London workhouse, and stepping down into a Roman cellar.

American Journal of Archaeology

The AJA has set the standard for respected scholarship of Mediterranean archaeology since 1885. The April 2024 issue contains articles examining an Iron Age cemetery in the Jezreel Valley, bronze kitchenwares from Pompeii, rare gold-glass portraits, and malaria risk in Roman villa estates. Open-access content includes a study of polychromy on Etruscan terracotta urns and a review of an exhibition celebrating the ancient poet Enheduanna.

AIA 2023 Calendar

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.

interactive Digs

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.
