Archaeology on the Hill

May 30, 2017 - July 8, 2017

Dates for the dig this summer on The Hill.  We are really excited to be working on the James and Henny Freeman lot!

May 30 Field school starts; student orientation
June 5-16 Excavation at 108 – 110 Talbot Lane
June 17 Public open house on-site connected with Juneteenth commemoration at the Academy
June 19 Start lab processing and analysis at Asbury parsonage
July 1-4 Holiday
July 7 Field school ends
July 8 Public presentation of findings, location TBA

We welcome all volunteers in the field and in the lab and will provide training, so no experience is necessary.

Children are very welcome to join us, though of course young children are best accompanied by an adult. We may not be on-site at various times due to weather and a couple of trips to local historic sites with the students.

Anyone who wants to call ahead before visiting can reach me at 703-862-7137.
