Please join us for Public Archaeology Day!

On Saturday, October 19, at Gordon Hall in Dexter, Michigan, you are invited behind the scenes at a University of Michigan archaeological dig. 

Archaeology students from a field methods course at the U-M Museum of Anthropological Archaeology are conducting excavations at this historic nineteenth-century home, which was built in 1841 by Judge Samuel W. Dexter and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Visitors can view the excavations up close, ask questions about the dig, and go on a site tour.  Public Archaeology Day is free and open to all. Read more here
