2010 Public Archaeology Season Opens

Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum’s very popular Public Archaeology program begins TODAY and will continue through July 3rd. JPPM’s archaeologists welcome volunteers back to the Smith’s St. Leonard site, the buried remains of an 18th century plantation that include a family residence, slave quarter, detached kitchen, barn, and other buildings. Volunteers can help excavate on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between 10am and 3pm (weather permitting) and can also help clean and examine the artifacts found on the site in the MAC Lab on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This program is fun, exciting, and free! No experience? No worries. We’ll teach you! You can come for a day, part of a day, or for the whole season. If you would like to participate, please call Ed Chaney at 410.586.8554 or email echaney@mdp.state.md.us to schedule your visit.

Fun for all during last year’s season
