Archaeology Lab Experience

Saturday, February 8, 2020

Ages 8 & up

Reach out and touch history! Join the Archaeology Program for this rare opportunity to process real artifacts discovered in the Mount Calvert Slave Quarter excavation. In the summer of 2019, we excavated the area where a community of enslaved men, women, and children lived in the decades before emancipation and found nails and bricks from the buildings, along with animal bones and oyster shells discarded after meals, fragments of plates and bottles, and personal items like buttons, keys, and tobacco pipes. Come prepared to get your hands dirty during this
immersive experience!
