Explore the early history of Dartmouth through an archaeological excavation at an 18th-century house site on campus.
Explore the early history of Dartmouth through an archaeological excavation at an 18th century house site on campus. Archaeology faculty and students from the Department of Anthropology will be working daily June 3-16. Alums, students, and community members can participate in the excavations by signing up as a volunteer (half-day or longer), or just stop by to see the project in action, view some artifacts, and learn about what archaeology can teach us about the past.
Organizers have potential sites in mind for the dig, but they need to wait until the snow melts a bit before they can do the geophysics to determine the best one. A more exact location is forthcoming!
More information about signing up to be a volunteer will be available in the spring.
Events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
