Informative Lectures

The Friends of Archaeology lecture series is the main focus of our organization. Through our lecture series we bring you expert scientists and explorers to share their experiences and inform us of new discoveries in archaeological research. Our lectures are free and open to the public. Our 2017-2018 lecture season has concluded but stay tuned for our fall season. For a list of our past lectures please visit our “Past Lectures and Trips” page on this website.


Our monthly Symposium offers opportunities for members to share their experiences and knowledge on favorite subjects, or simply come and learn from others. The Symposium is held on the first Tuesday of every month from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Community Room at Central Market, 3815 Westheimer at Weslayan 77027. The Community Room is on the second floor overlooking the flower market. Stairs and elevator are near the Community Room’s north entrance close to the dining area. Room opens at 9:30 a.m., and presentations begin at 10:00 a.m..

Our 2017-2018 Symposium season has now concluded and six outstanding programs were presented, including: Understanding the Art of Ancient Egypt, Walking Through the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, a review of the book, “The Bootlegger”, an open round table discussion, and a member’s story about buying an original menu from the RMS Titanic for $45 and selling it for $65,000.

The Symposium will meet again in October and we look forward to another season of discovery by sharing our talents and experiences. Please join us.
