Participate in digs, walking tours, talks, exhibits, and other hands-on fun and learning throughout the month. More than thirty programs are scheduled and most events are free. Vermont Archaeology Month showcases our remarkable history and priceless sense of place, while also providing interesting and fun educational and outdoor recreation opportunities. Learn more about the 14th - 16th century Colchester pot, illustrated above, at several of the Archaeology Month events (photo courtesy of Fleming Museum).

There’s something for everyone. For example, learn about Abenaki history from Vermont’s “First” women. You wanted to be an archaeologist when you grew up but life got in the way? Now’s your chance to get your hands dirty digging with archaeologists and volunteers. Or, release your inner child and try your hand at throwing an atlatl. Your kids may love it, even if you’re too shy.
