Our Society offers an exciting public lecture series which brings together lecturers and professionals from all over the world.
The AIA provides many great programs for the public, students and professional archaeologists alike, including: Site Preservation Initiatives, which provide grants to help preserve archaeological resources outside North America; and an Annual Meeting, which presents the results of the latest research as well as opportunities for scholars and students to exchange ideas, seek jobs, and interact. The AIA also offers fellowships and grants for young scholars to help them complete and publish new research, and awards which provide recognition for excellence in archaeology and related fields.
