XXVII International Association for Caribbean Archaeology
St. Croix, US Virgin Islands July 23-29, 2017

It is with great pleasure that the Organizing Committee for the 27th Congress of the International Association for Caribbean Archaeology (IACA) – Asociación Internacional de Arqueología del Caribe (AIAC) – Association Internationale d’Archéologie de la Caraibe (AIAC) – invites delegates to St. Croix, the largest of the United States Virgin Islands.

Since its founding in 1961, the IACA/AICA Congress has provided an international forum for academics, amateur archaeologists, archaeological enthusiasts, and the general public to discuss issues and current research in Caribbean archaeology. IACA brings together an international academic community, encourages interdisciplinary dialogue, and highlights current research regarding the prehistory and history of the Circum-Caribbean, terrestrial and marine archaeology, cultural resource management, archaeological ethics, archaeological theory, and public archaeology.

The Congress will be held from July 23 – 29, 2017, at Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort & Casino, located in St. Croix’s East End.

More information will be appearing on this site in the following weeks, so please check back frequently.

In the meantime, please begin to plan your travel. We look forward to sharing our island with you.
