Help celebrate Virginia Archaeology Month 2013 Monticello’s Archaeology Department hosts its annual open house, featuring displays and exhibits on recent discoveries in the field and the lab, as well as walking tours of the vanished Monticello Plantation landscape. Archaeology staff members will be on hand to answer questions. Displays and exhibits are found in the Woodland Pavilion and the Visitor’s Center. Free · 10:00 am-4:00 pm. Walking Tours leave the Woodland Pavilion at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm.

We are planning to go on the 1pm walking tour.

    The Woodland pavilion for the start of the open house tour is a side building from the main visitor's center, back from the Cafe. There are signs directing to the open house.

    Most of the Jefferson Parkway traffic is headed to the Carter's Mountain orchard, but expect to spend a few minutes hunting for parking at the Monticello parking lot.

    Hi guys! We are looking forward to the tour tomorrow. We will try to be in the area for a half hour or so before the tour leaves. Arthur says to say that you should "look for the loon in a pith helmet" (that would be Arthur). We will also have a Meetup sign with us, so just come on over and introduce yourself!

    Oops, originally said Friday, but intended Saturday!

      Ah, are you going to switch it to Saturday? That would be easier than getting out of work Friday!

      October 8, 2013

    • Caroline

      yes, already switched -- never intended Friday!

    Thanks, Caroline, for this great idea. When I was a kid, I read NatGeo and wanted to be an archaeologist....or a cowboy.
