Museum internships present tremendous opportunities for archaeology students to engage in serious research and to benefit from hands-on training. To give students more opportunities and to honor Past President Elizabeth Bartman's tremendous record of service, the AIA is establishing the Elizabeth Bartman Museum Internship Program, which will help make it possible for deserving graduate students to intern in a museum with an archaeological collection, either in the United States or abroad.

  • Site Preservation

    Every year, archaeological sites are destroyed by development, looting, vandalism, warfare, environmental changes, and irresponsible tourism. The AIA Site Preservation Program safeguards the world’s archaeological heritage through direct preservation, education, and outreach, and by facilitating the spread of best practices.
