AIA-OC Awards 2018 Educational Grants to Two
Southern California Graduate Students

The 2018 AIA OC Grant Award Winners are Matt Howland, UCSD and Alicia Gorman, UCSB. Matt's project is a comprehensive study of archaeological ceramics recovered from an Iron Age copper production site, Khirbat al-Jariya (KAJ), in southern Jordan’s Faynan region. Alicia's research addresses the entanglement of religion and social inequality at the site of Cerro Tortolita, a ceremonial center with a sizable resident population located in the upper Ica Valley on the south coast of Peru.





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.
