The AIA will turn 140 years old in 2019. To mark this milestone, the AIA would like to invite you to join us for a day of celebration at ArchaeoCon 2019. This event will be held in San Diego, California, on Saturday, January 5th at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina.
The day will include hands-on experiences, demonstrations, archaeology presentations, and more. Also on hand will be AIA Trustees Sarah Parcak and Josh Gates. Dr. Sarah Parcak is an archaeologist, Egyptologist, winner of the 2016 TED Prize, and founder of the GlobalXplorer° project. Josh Gates is an archaeologist, television presenter, producer, and author who currently hosts and co-executive produces the Travel Channel series Expedition Unknown.
ArchaeoCon 2019 is being held in connection with the 120th AIA-SCS Annual Meeting, but is open to the public. Though there is a small entrance fee for non-meeting attendees, you do not need to register for the Annual Meeting to attend ArchaeoCon 2019. There will be more information in the coming weeks, so for now, please be sure to save the date!
