Celebrate Archaeology Month in Virginia by learning about recent archaeological discoveries happening around the Commonwealth. While such discoveries are exciting, they’re also “upending history” at historic sites like James Monroe’s Highland where research is ongoing and staff are challenged with developing new ways in which to tell the story of the home of our fifth president. Archaeology is also used to fill in the missing pieces of what we already know. At Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest, continuing investigation provides information about materials used in buildings and what went on within them, to the plants in the grounds. From new interpretive tours to virtual reality experiences, discover solutions to the ever-changing landscape of historic research and interpretation.

 

Speakers:

  • Sara Bon-Harper, Executive Director, James Monroe's Highland
  • Jack Gary, Director of Archaeology and Landscapes, Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest
