James Madison's Montpelier
Sun, Nov 08, 2020 - Fri, Nov 13, 2020
The Montpelier Foundation's Archaeology Department is developing leading-edge methodology for involving the metal detector community in the use of metal detectors as a remote-sensing device to locate and protect sites.
Designed for metal-detector specialists and hobbyists, the program serves to introduce the significance of archaeological methods such as gridded surveys, density plots to define site concentrations, and a deeper understanding of the past. One of the main emphases during the week-long training program is the importance of site context for individual finds. We also welcome archaeologists who are interested in learning about metal detecting to attend these programs.
While participating in the program, you will stay in the antebellum plantation house known as Arlington House. There are other more individualized housing options on the property for an extra charge or there is the option of local B&Bs.
