The Mississippi-Memphis Society of the Archaeological Institute of America was founded at the University of Mississippi in Oxford by the distinguished classical archaeologist David M. Robinson in 1948. In 1982 the University of Memphis joined us in a mid-south collaboration, and Rhodes College also participates.
The annual lecture series of our local society offers the public the opportunity to see and hear presentations by renowned and experienced archaeologists. Talks sponsored by the national headquarters are regularly supplemented by a variety of locally sponsored events.
Lectures are free to the public, but those with a special interest might want to consider becoming a member of the Archaeological Institute of America. For additional information, please feel free to contact one of the following:
