Stanford AIA Society Pairs with the Stanford Cantor Arts Center for Specialized Gallery Tours
December 11, 2012
As part of National Archaeology Day, the Stanford AIA Society hosted a series of lecture tours of the Stanford Museum Collections. Talks focused on Egyptian, Classical, Asian and African cultures. Many of the attendees were new to the museum, while others were museum visitors that joined the group. One highlight was the afternoon sun illuminating the Qing Dynasty jades from behind, a magical moment that emphasized why jade has been prized throughout history.
More Collaborating Organizations have joined us for International Archaeology Day 2014!
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
