RAI Events

Events image

The Royal Archaeological Institute holds a variety of events each year, including a monthly lecture programme from October to May and at least three meetings.

  • Lectures are given by distinguished participants in the Institute's areas of interest, and are made available online to our members.

  • At least three meetings (specialist site visits and tours) are organised each year. The regularly occurring autumn, spring and summer meetings take place in different parts of Britain and continental Europe and recent meeting venues include Salisbury, South-West Wales, Finland and Portugal.

  • Recently, the RAI have started hosting an annual conference in different parts of Britain, focusing on a particular period of history and on a region of Britain or Ireland. Often these are organised in conjunction with local archaeology societies.

Students wishing to attend any of these events may be eligible for a Cheney Bursary. Go to our Grants page to find out more.

Past events

Some films and photographs from previous meetings are available to see on our past meetings page - we'd love this to become a full archive, so if members have any photos of past meetings please do let us have them.

There is a page with information about our past annual conferences, which we have been running since 2009.
