Our Saturday, October 19, 2013 the AIA-OC helped celebrate National Archaeology Day
with a program and cuneiform writing demonstration at the Bowers Museum

The AIA-OC also had a display for International Archaeology Day at the Mission Viejo Library.
The AIA-OC had a field trip to the Center for Near Eastern Archaeology at La Sierra University on Sunday, November 3, 2013.
part of a salute to National Archaeology Day, the field trip included a
behind the scenes tour by Dr. Douglas Clark, Director of the Exhibit of
Ancient Near Eastern Artifacts Labs for Collection and Research, and a
PowerPoint presentation on “Excavations in Jordan.” See photos here.
Sierra University has one of the largest collections in the United
States of daily use artifacts from Jordan, Palestine, and Israel.
We are one of the AIA local societies
provide a vehicle for people interested in archaeology to meet one
another, to hear
scholars about their current research, to learn about recent
archaeological discoveries and to take trips together to nearby
archaeological sites and other archaeology-related events.
