Black History Month Archaeology Open House


In honor of Black History Month, the Monticello Department of Archaeology is hosting an open house featuring displays of recent excavations and artifacts, engaging activities for all ages, and walking tours.

Walking Tour Details (11 a.m. and 2 p.m.)

Join archaeologists for a 90-minute walking tour into the woodlands and visit the location of summer excavations, Site 30. In recent excavations, this site has already revealed important information about enslaved agricultural laborers at Monticello as well as the precolonial activities of Indigenous communities.

Tours will leave from the Bronze Plantation Model in the visitors center courtyard at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

This walk follows an historic road that is fairly flat, with uneven terrain in some areas. Sturdy shoes are recommended. The walk is approximately 1 mile round trip.
