The AIA works with archaeologists, educators, museum staff, and other specialists to create and compile programs and resources that you can use in your classroom or at home to explain what archaeology is, what archaeologists do, and how sites are discovered, uncovered, and interpreted. Resources include lesson plans and activities that can be downloaded and adapted for your use. Topics range from creating small-scale simulated digs to re-creating ancient costumes and hosting your own Roman feast.
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.
