Dispatches from the AIA

Dispatches from the AIA, a regular feature in ARCHAEOLOGY magazine, reports on the latest initiatives and programs undertaken by the AIA and its over 100 affiliated local societies. Dispatches is a great way for AIA members and ARCHAEOLOGY readers to learn about the Institute and how the support of members and donors enables us to fulfill our mission of informing the public about archaeology.
