The Archeological Society of Virginia (ASV) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the study of archaeology and providing research and education opportunities across the state. Members participate in excavations and host a variety of events designed to promote archeology. Kittiewan Plantation, a Colonial-period plantation house and associated grounds and buildings located in Charles City County, is home to the ASV.
Kittiewan Plantation is an eighteenth – nineteenth century "middling" plantation house. Built around 1770 by Dr. William Rickman, Surgeon General of the Continental Armies in Virginia, the property is featured in the AMC series "TURN". AMC's TURN tells the story of America's first spy ring. Set during the Revolutionary War, TURN centers on Abe Woodhull, a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island, who bands together with his childhood friends to form the Culper Ring -- an unlikely team of secret agents who not only went on to help George Washington turn the tide of the war, but also gave birth to modern spycraft. Tours highlight the manor house and its grounds, as well as an extensive collection of Americana and exhibits on Virginia archeology.
