If you missed our first Public Archaeology Day on July 16th because of the rain, don't despair--Public Archaeology Day #2 is coming up this weekend! On Saturday, July 30th from 10 am to 2 pm we will be working at 721 Field St. in Stone Hill, the oldest part of Hampden. As before, 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 our two other dig sites, which we have now more or less completed, as well as brief talks on the history of Hampden.
Please note that none of the houses at our excavation sites will be open to the public, and that 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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there!
