AIA Launches Young Patrons Group
March 28, 2012
The Young Patrons of the Archaeological Institute of America is a vibrant community of young people in and around New York who support the mission and programs of the AIA. This special membership group is designed for those aged 21-39 who wish to learn more about archaeology while participating in exclusive events, behind-the-scenes tours, lectures and workshops with the world's foremost archaeologists.
On March 27, the Young Patrons group was treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the American Numismatic Society, where they viewed fascinating examples of ancient Lydian, Greek, and Roman coinage with the society's director, Ute Wartenberg Kagen.
In advance of the Institute's 2015 Working Conference for Educators: Building a Strong Future for Archaeological Outreach and Education the AIA is soliciting a series of one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs.
We began the first week with our second group of students by explaining the archaeology of Achill Island and touring the sites at Slievemore.
Support archaeological research, education, and preservation.
