Archaeology is invaluable to understanding human stories and the landscape of slavery at Monticello. Our archaeologists have discovered historically significant artifacts for over 70 years, and we look forward to sharing stories and artifacts as we kickoff #ArchaeologyMonth in October.

Join us to hear from Monticello Archaeologists Corey Sattes and Chris Devine as they highlight our “Legacy Collection.” This collection consists of artifacts found before Monticello had an officially established archaeology department. Sattes and Devine will take your questions and discuss how these collections are both excellent resources as well as curatorial challenges.
