Archaeology Season Opening Day
Saturday, March 28 2015 at 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Celebrate the opening of the 22nd dig season of the Jamestown Rediscovery Project at this fun-filled, family friendly day!
Guests meet the Jamestown Rediscovery archaeologists and learn about the discoveries made at the James Fort site during the 2014 field season. The day will also include experimental archaeology, historic trades demonstrations, living history programs, and special tours.
In the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium, meet the archaeology conservation staff and learn about how they care for, conserve, and research the unique assemblage of artifacts from James Fort. Children can take part in sorting through the smallest excavated material to find animal bones, shell, and seeds for clues to fort life in the 17th century.
