We regretfully inform our members that Lynn Bishop, AIA-OC Governor at
Large, passed away in March 2013. Lynn joined AIA-OC in 2005 and we remember her as an energetic and inspiring member of our board.
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.
