This event is no longer on sale.

Sunday March 28

4:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

The Archaeology Excavation Expedition is Montpelier’s most popular week-long participatory program. This is a week-long hands-on volunteer and educational experience in which you will work side-by-side with professional archaeologists on actual archaeological research sites on the Montpelier property.  While digging through Madison-era deposits, you will experience the excitement of uncovering artifacts and features that have been buried for more than two centuries!


This week-long expedition begins Sunday at 6:00pm and ends Friday at 4:00pm. Those staying in on-site housing will have the option of staying over Friday night and departing Saturday morning.
