Celebrate International Archaeology Day



INTERNATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGY DAY
Since the founding of the American Research Center in Egypt nearly seven decades ago, its paramount goal has been to understand Egyptian heritage and culture through the study and conservation of Egypt's most historically important monuments, architecture and artifacts.
The Archaeological Institute of America, which has a mission closely aligned with that of ARCE, annually sponsors International Archaeology Day to promote stronger education and engagement with archaeology. This year, we are proud to be a collaborating organization with the AIA as it celebrates archaeology and the world's diverse cultures. In 2016, more than 700 events were held in two dozen countries.
Please join me in supporting International Archaeology Day on October 21! By participating, you are encouraging an appreciation of archaeology among enthusiasts of all ages. There are a few ways you can take part:

  • Attend an event near you. Events range from family-friendly tours to lectures to hands-on activities and more.
