Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Archaeologists, classicists, art historians, epigraphers, and anthropologists from US, Canada, and 35 other countries convened in Philadephia, Pennsylvania, for the 113th Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA). The 2012 annual meeting was held on January 5 to January 8 contemporaneous with the 143rd Annual Meeting for the American Philological Association (APA). The AIA annual meeting was previously held in Philadelphia in 2009 with 2,800 conference guests.

As one of the largest and oldest established gathering of classical scholars and archaeologists, this year’s meeting featured more than 200 events including academic sessions and workshops, presidential plenary sessions, and professional development sessions, e.g. session on obtaining funding for research and a workshop on publishing strategies. The AIA Archaeology Fair was also held for members of the public and conference attendees and their families.
