Lecture Program

The AIA is pleased to present each year a series of lectures by top scholars from North America and abroad on a wide range of current archaeological topics, hosted by AIA societies throughout the United States and Canada. These lectures are free to the public, and all are welcome.

The 125th Lecture Program has finished for the season, and we are now working on the coming 2021/2022 season; the new schedule will be posted later this summer.  In the meantime, please visit the AIA’s YouTube channel to view some of the recorded online lectures.

You can contact the AIA Lecture Coordinator at Lsparks@archaeological.org or call 857-305-9360 for more information. We hope you are able to attend an AIA lecture, in whatever format it is, soon!
