Welcome to the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) Orange County Society, Inc. in Southern California,
also known as AIA-OC.

We are one of the AIA local societies that provide a vehicle for people interested in archaeology to meet one another, to hear from 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.
