Meetings programme

Every year, the RAI arranges at least three Meetings for its members. The Autumn and Spring meetings consist of one-day or weekend visits to buildings and monuments. Specialist guides accompany us on the visits, many of which provide access to buildings not usually open to the public.

The Summer Meeting is held in a British, Irish or European location. In addition to a comprehensive programme of guided visits to places of special interest, there are evening lectures, and on the last evening, the Annual Dinner of the Institute. The Summer Meeting report is usually published with the following Archaeological Journal.

We are creating an archive of past meetings, where videos and photographs from previous trips and events are hosted.
