The Toledo Society is a local chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America.
Its mission is to celebrate the ancient world by providing the people of
Toledo and the Northwest Ohio region with free lectures on
archaeology and ancient art by noted scholars in the field.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Toledo Society has cancelled the remainder of its 2019-2020 lecture series. If conditions allow, we will try to reschedule the cancelled lectures for next fall. In the meantime, be safe and stay healthy!
