Archaeology Behind-the-Scenes Tours

  • 1542 Bateman Bridge Road
  • Forest, VA 24551

Ever wondered what it would be like to work on the archaeology of Mr. Jefferson’s retreat home? Join Poplar Forest’s archaeologists on a walking tour of their latest project, the archaeology of the new Poplar Forest Parkway. Explore the course of the road and where it intersects with historic aspects of the property. Comfortable walking shoes will be necessary.  In addition to the Parkway walking tour, the Archaeology Lab will be open all day! Stop in and see some of the archaeologists’ favorite artifacts that have been found at Poplar Forest and hear about what these artifacts tell us about life at Poplar Forest. Admission is included with general admission. For more information or to reserve your spot, call the Museum Shop. This event is free for Poplar Forest members.
