The Archaeological Institute of America's Annual Spring Gala


The Archaeological Institute of America's Annual Spring Gala


 The Archaeological Institute of America invites you to attend its annual spring fundraising Gala at Capitale in New York City on April 25, 2012. This year, the Gala will celebrate all things Turkish, drawing inspiration from Turkey's rich archaeological and cultural heritage. The event, which will be led by mistress of ceremonies Brooke Gladstone of NPR, will honor Crawford H. Greenewalt, Jr., longtime excavator at Sardis, with the Bandelier Award for Public Service to Archaeology.

Gala guests will experience a contemporary version of a Lydian feast using the ingredients available to the country's ancient people. The evening's auction will make available unique travel experiences, dazzling jewelry, authentic handicrafts, and private tours with some of the world’s leading archaeologists, among many other tempting items and adventures. When the dinner program winds down, the after-party will go into full swing with dancing, authentic music, and a sampling of exotic spirits.


The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) is North America's oldest and largest organization devoted to the world of archaeology. The Institute is a nonprofit group founded in 1879 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1906. Today, the AIA has nearly 250,000 Members belonging to more than 100 Local Societies in the United States, Canada, and overseas.

The AIA exists to promote archaeological inquiry and public understanding of the material record of the human past worldwide. The Institute is committed to preserving the world's archaeological resources and cultural heritage for the benefit of people in the present and in the future. Believing that greater understanding of the past enhances our shared sense of humanity and enriches our existence, the AIA seeks to educate people of all ages about the significance of archaeological discovery.


Professor Crawford H. Greenewalt, Jr., will be honored with the AIA’s Bandelier Award for Public Service to Archaeology for exemplary work at Sardis (Turkey), capital of ancient Lydia and the home of King Croesus. He served as the field director for the Archaeological Exploration of Sardis for 30 years (1977–2007) and as a member of the project since 1959. The ancient city of Sardis, located in western Turkey, was the capital of the Lydian kingdom (seventh to sixth centuries B.C.E.) and has been explored and studied for more than 45 years by the Archaeological Exploration of Sardis, a project cosponsored by the Harvard University Art Museums and Cornell University.

Greenewalt is professor emeritus of classical archaeology at the University of California, Berkeley. His works include “A Helmet of the Sixth Century B.C. from Sardis” (with A.M. Heywood, BASOR 285 [1992] 1–31), “When a Mighty Empire Was Destroyed: The Common Man at the Fall of Sardis, ca. 546 B.C.” (PAPS 136 [1992] 247–71), and “Arms and Weapons at Sardis in the Mid Sixth Century B.C.” (Arkeoloji ve sanat 79 [1997] 2–20).

He received his A.B. from Harvard College in 1959 and his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1966. In addition to his fieldwork in Sardis, Greenewalt also participated in the Gordion Expedition as well as the University of Ankara Pitane-Candarl and Old Smyrna-Bayrakl Expeditions.


Brooke Gladstone is the co-host and managing editor of public radio’s On the Media, heard weekly by more than a million people nationwide. She has also served as senior editor of NPR’s All Things Considered and as a Russia correspondent for NPR. She’s recipient of two Peabody Awards, a National Press Club Press Criticism Award, and a Gracie for outstanding news host among others. In 2011 her graphic non-fiction media manifesto, The Influencing Machine, was named one of Publishers Weekly Top 100 of the year and one of The Atlantic’s Ten Masterpieces of Graphic Nonfiction.
