​Public Archaeology at JPPM

Every summer, volunteers are given the opportunity to see what it is like to be an archaeologist and excavate an actual site, through our Public Archaeology Program. You can help us dig and screen for artifacts in the field or wash objects at the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Lab. Each day offers opportunities for those who want more than just digging.  You can come as often as you want – an hour, a day, the entire season! It’s a fun way for the whole family to learn about the past. Who knows what great discoveries await you?



Public Archaeology for the 2020 season has been cancelled.

Please make sure to check out our increasingly digital presence on Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum's Instagram and Facebook pages, as well as the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Lab Facebook page.
