The Archaeology Excavation Expedition is Montpelier’s most popular week-long participatory program.

This May 7-12, 2023 program 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!


Housing is not included in the program pricing. Participants are responsible for their own housing arrangements. On-site housing is available for an additional fee. Email dig@montpelier.org to inquire about this limited housing option.
