DID YOU KNOW?

The Archaeological Institute of America has been offering over 120+ years of free public lectures.

 

Our Washington D.C. chapter of the AIA frequently offers six or more lectures a year! While some of these are sponsored by the National AIA, many are organized by the local AIA-DC governance board.

Remember: the lectures are always free and open to the public!
