National Archaeology Day
October 20, 2012
National Archaeology Day is a celebration of archaeology and the thrill of discovery. Every October the AIA and its societies throughout the United States and Canada presents archaeological programs and activities in over 100 cities for people of all ages and interests. Whether it is a family-friendly archaeology fair, a guided tour of a local archaeological site, a simulated dig, a lecture or a classroom visit from an archaeologist, the interactive, hands-on programs presented by the Institute and our societies provide the chance to indulge your inner Indiana Jones.
Annual AIA Gala
The Archaeological Institute of America held its Annual spring fundraising Gala at Capitale in New York City on April 25, 2012. The Gala celebrated all things Turkish, drawing inspiration from Turkey's rich archaeological and cultural past. The event honored Crawford H. Greenewalt, Jr., longtime excavator at Sardis, with the Bandelier Award for Public Service to Archaeology. Learn more at archaeological.org/gala.
Information on the 2013 gala will be posted as it becomes available.
