Why should you care about someone else’s stories?
Other people’s stories are your stories as well. They may come from a different time or place, but they’re all part of our human story.  Archaeologists have been telling the world’s most fascinating stories for millennia.  Archaeology allows all of our ancestors to speak to us and to future generations. 

We believe that sharing this knowledge is vital to our survival. 

AIA-Houston searches the world for the brightest minds, the most innovative thinkers, the most cutting-edge researchers to bring our many stories to Houston.
