Archaeology Site Updates at the Joiner's Shop

Monday - Friday, June 3 - July 11, 2014 (except June 6 and July 4)
1 pm and 3 pm

Learn about our current archaeological field research at the Joiner’s Shop on Mulberry Row as it is being conducted by the Monticello-University of Virginia Archaeological Field School.  The Joiner’s Shop was the structure in which highly-skilled free and enslaved craftsmen manufactured decorative woodwork and furniture for Jefferson’s mansion during the 18th and 19th centuries. Each day, Monticello’s archaeologists will give two short talks (at 1 pm and 3 pm) on the history of the Joiner’s Shop as well as the basics of archaeological research design, soils, stratigraphy, excavation strategies, our latest discoveries, and how they fit into our larger understanding of changing life ways at Monticello.
