AIA Launches Young Patrons Group

The Young Patrons of the Archaeological Institute of America is a vibrant community of young people in and around New York who support the mission and programs of the AIA. This special membership group is designed for those aged 21-39 who wish to learn more about archaeology while participating in exclusive events, behind-the-scenes tours, lectures and workshops with the world’s foremost archaeologists.

On March 27, the Young Patrons group was treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the American Numismatic Society, where they viewed fascinating examples of ancient Lydian, Greek, and Roman coinage with the society’s director, Ute Wartenberg Kagen.
