The History List (www.TheHistoryList.com), the calendar system for history organizations, includes a free tool that allows organizations and individuals to easily create and embed event calendars and lists into their sites. Individuals add information about their organization and events to The History List and then use a widget builder to select the content, format, and appearance for their event list. When they're satisfied with the result, they copy the HTML that the widget builder generates and add it to their site. This is very similar to the process that one uses to embed a YouTube video into their site.
