AIA Lecturer/Host: Andrew M.T. Moore
Andrew M.T. Moore is Immediate Past President of the AIA. Recently retired from Rochester Institute of Technology, he also taught archaeology at the University of Arizona and Yale University. Since 1966, Dr. Moore has participated in archaeological surveys, excavations, and field research across Western Asia and Southern Europe, including Turkey, Israel, Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Italy, Malta, Croatia, and Greece. His research has concentrated on the advent of agriculture and sedentary life in Western Asia, especially in Syria. In 2002, Dr. Moore began a new project to investigate the spread of farming around the Mediterranean and into southern Europe. At the invitation of colleagues in Croatia, he is conducting this research in central Dalmatia, through surveys and excavations at the Neolithic villages of Danilo and Pokrovnik. Since 2013, Dr. Moore has lectured to excellent reviews on several AIA Tours programs.
