The year kicks-off with Discovering  Jefferson’s Monticello Landscape presented by Derek Wheeler Research Archaeologist at Monticello and Crystal O’Connor Field Research Manager at Monticello. They will be discussing the critical role that Monticello’s Department of Archaeology plays in understanding the lives of enslaved laborers, as well as analyzing Jefferson’s plantation management strategies.  They will also outline the department’s research goals, using one recently excavated site, an early 19th-century quarter site for the enslaved field laborers, as an example.  Make your plans and reservations today.
