Archaeology Open House

Help celebrate Virginia Archaeology Month! Monticello’s Archaeology Department hosts its annual open house, featuring displays, exhibits on recent discoveries in the field and the lab, walking tours of the vanished Monticello Plantation landscape, lightening-talks about current research, and an interactive dig for children.

Lightning talks will happen at 10:30am, 12:30pm, and 2:30pm. Walking Tours leave the Woodland Pavilion at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm
