Archaeology Behind-the-Scenes Tours
October 6, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmFree with regular paid admission
An amateur archaeologist himself, Thomas Jefferson is credited by some for setting the precedent for modern archaeological science. Join Poplar Forest’s archaeologists for a 90-minute walking tour focused on the latest archaeological dig sites and discoveries on the plantation. View a special display of objects found on the property, and learn what they tell us about life at Poplar Forest.

Admission to Poplar Forest includes a guided house tour and self-guided exploration of exhibits in the lower level of the house, the Wing of Offices, the ornamental grounds and slave quarter site.
