Live and silent auction items will be featured in an online gallery prior to the evening and will allow for pre-bidding. Pre-bidding will open Monday, March 30, 2015.

The silent auction will provide an opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind works of art, archaeologically-themed items, jewelry, and weekend getaways.  A favorite portion of the evening is when paddles are raised to bid on once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences.  The live auction will implore you to dust off that luggage and travel to the far corners of the earth in support of archaeology.  Please visit us before planning your next adventure as these exclusive voyages will easily fulfill the most experienced traveler’s wanderlust. Proceeds from the auction of these generously donated items will support the AIA’s mission: Excavate, Educate, and Advocate.

If you cannot attend the event in person, we encourage you to consider supporting our largest fundraiser of the year by bidding online.  To date,  past benefit contributors have enabled the AIA to provide over two million dollars of critical support to the field of archaeology.  Please visit us at the end of March for an auction preview!

DONATE! We are currently accepting auction items.  If you would like to donate an item to the auction or have any questions, please contact Andri Magdalena Cauldwell, Senior Director of Event Planning at or via phone 617-353-8704 for additional information.
