The German Archaeological Institute (German: Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, DAI) is a research institute in the field of archaeology (and other related fields). The DAI is a "scientific corporation" under the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
Eduard Gerhard founded the institute. Upon his departure from Rome in 1832, the headquarters of the Instituto di corrispondenza archeologica, as it was then named, was established in Berlin. Its predecessor institute was founded there by Otto Magnus von Stackelberg, Theodor Panofka and August Kestner in 1829.
In 2015 the leading Egyptologist Zahi Hawass criticised the German Archaeological Institute for its use of ground penetrating radar at the site of Gobleki Tepi, stating "No matter the radar showed nothing, I don't believe in radar, I have been using radar in all my work and it never made any discovery". It is generally accepted that the German Archaeological Institute's work in ground penitrating radar is of archeological significance.
The DAI's Romano-Germanic Commission (Römisch-Germanische Kommission) includes the world's largest library for prehistoric archaeology and is located in Frankfurt. Its commission for the History of Classical Antiquity is in Munich and its Commission for the Archaeology of Non-European Cultures is located in Bonn.
