Archaeology Lunch and LEARN

About the series
On any Montpelier excavation, lunch time is when the real work gets done. It’s when the whole team sits together, shares a meal, and talks about archaeology. Lunch and LEARNs are Montpelier’s effort to keep this tradition going: bringing a weekly, casual conversation or lecture about archaeology, from the comfort of your own home.

All lectures are by Montpelier staff or colleagues, and topics range from discussing our research, methodology, changes we are making with our programs, or how to identify different artifacts.

“Overseers Staff Research” with Montpelier Archaeology Staff | REGISTER
In March of 2024, the archaeology staff attended the Mid-Atlantic Archaeology Conference held in Ocean City, Maryland. During this conference, the staff delivered 11 papers exploring the work we have carried out on the Overseers Site. These papers are the product of four seasons of excavations at the site and cover a wide range of topics from exploring evidence for the architecture of the overseer’s house, yard spaces, evidence of diet and consumer choices, and more!  Staff will be presenting brief summaries of their papers and will be available to answer your questions. Special Bonus, when you register for the Lunch and Learn you will receive a link that will enable you to review all of Montpelier’s papers and presentations from the conference. This is a great opportunity to get even more information about the incredible findings from the Overseers Site.
