Dispatches from the AIA
Dispatches from the AIA, a regular feature in ARCHAEOLOGY magazine, reports on the latest initiatives and programs undertaken by the AIA and its 108 Local Societies. Dispatches is a great way for AIA members and ARCHAEOLOGY readers to learn about the Institute and how the support of members and donors enables us to fulfill our mission of informing the public about archaeology.

We began the first week with our second group of students by explaining the archaeology of Achill Island and touring the sites at Slievemore.
