About Us

The Archaeological Institute of America is North America’s oldest and largest organization devoted to the world of archaeology. The AIA is a nonprofit organization founded in 1879 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1906. Today, the AIA’s members are organized into over 100 Local Societies in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

The AIA is unique because it counts professional archaeologists, students, and interested individuals from all walks of life among its members. This diverse group is united by a shared passion for archaeology and its role in furthering human knowledge. To this end, the AIA promotes archaeological inquiry and public understanding of the material record of the human past worldwide. Members are dedicated to the greater understanding of archaeology, the protection of the world’s archaeological resources, and to the encouragement and support of archaeological research and publication.

Since 1948 the AIA has published the highly-regarded and popular bi-monthly magazine, Archaeology, with a readership of more than 700,000 and the acclaimed scholarly publication, the American Journal of Archaeology. The AIA is an educational organization offering financial support to scholars, an Annual Meeting for the exchange of ideas and information, and a wide ranging public education program for inquiring minds of all ages.
