Public Archaeology Day This Weekend!

This weekend we will be hosting our first Public Archaeology Day as a part of the Hampden Community Archaeology Project. This Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm we will be working at 3337 Falls Rd., and anyone interested in volunteering or just simply finding out more about what we're doing is welcome to come. In addition to getting a chance to help us in the excavation process, visitors will be able to learn about the process of archaeological research from preliminary preparations through excavation, lab work, analysis and interpretation, and dissemination of final results. We will also be offering site tours of both 3337 Falls Rd. and another dig site, as well as brief talks on the history of Hampden.

Please note that niether of the houses at our excavation sites will be open, and that the visitors to the sites should park only on public streets and not in alley ways.

In the event of rain, the event will be cancelled.

If you would like specific directions on how to find us on Saturday, you can contact us at dgadsby@anth.umd.edu or rchidest@umich.edu. We hope to see you there!
