Public Archaeology

Saturday, May 20, 2023

Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum's Public Archaeology program provides members of the public with an annual opportunity to experience what it's like to be an archaeologist and participate in an actual excavation. Assist in excavating and screening for artifacts in the field or in washing objects at the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Lab (MAC Lab). Each day presents various opportunities for those seeking a deeper understanding of the past and is an enjoyable way for families to learn together. Join in field excavations and engaging outdoor activities suitable for all ages, with the added option of lab tours and work in the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Lab during the afternoons. Please dress appropriately for potentially getting dirty and bring a packed lunch if you plan to spend the entire day. In case of rain, all activities will be held indoors in the lab. Please note that children under 15 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, and due to limited space, registration is mandatory. Refunds are not possible within two weeks of registered date.
