Maritime Archaeology Interest Group
Chair: 
Matthew Harpster

The Maritime Archaeology Interest Group consists of AIA members who are interested in exploring and understanding all aspects of maritime life in the past and present.  Such interests include ships and shipwrecks, port cities, iconography and graffiti, maritime communities and landscapes, or literature and epigraphy.  Our goals are to promote our interests, scholarship, and knowledge to the extensive AIA community, to aid the AIA’s efforts to protect and manage maritime cultural heritage, and to communicate and to educate others about the importance of maritime communities and their material culture.

In addition to a regular session at the AIA Annual Meeting, the AIA also sponsors a series of lectures in North America that encompass maritime themes and material culture.  For more detailed information about these public lectures, please consult the AIA Lecture Program page.
