Lecture Program

This is the AIA’s 125th Lecture Program, running from September 2020 through April 2021.  Top scholars from North America and abroad are presenting a wide range of current archaeological topics for AIA societies throughout the United States and Canada. As always, lectures are free to the public, and all are welcome.  Please note that in response to COVID-19 we are making adjustments to the schedule as needed–ALL NATIONAL LECTURES FOR THE SEASON ARE BEING HELD ONLINE.  Details and updates are provided on individual listings.

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!
