A Fall Excavation is a great time for Archaeology. This is a week-long hands-on 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 is a perfect program for families to experience together.

This week-long expedition begins Sunday at 6:00pm and ends Friday at 4:00pm. 

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.
