The lectures are given by professional archaeologists who are experts in their fields and cover a wide range of topics from new excavation data to analysis of sculpture and painting. Our Membership includes professional, student, and avocational archaeologists with fieldwork expertise in Asia, Africa, Europe, North American, MesoAmerica, and South America. There is no better place in St. Louis to come and talk about archaeology. We are always glad to speak with middle school and high school students interested in a career in archaeology. We proudly remember our local history and especially the Mylonas years.
