Students participated in the professional excavation of an archaeological site in Keene, NH. The dig in Keene is investigating an 18th century home and a colonial inn and tavern, known as the Wyman Tavern, and students learned techniques and skills involved in unearthing an historical site.


Learning About Archaeological Excavation

The first few days at the site in Keene were spent learning some basic techniques. Sam and Carter learn how to write field notes. Joseph excavates a test pit as Carter uses a sieve.

Archaeologist Becky helps identify items from these pits, finding mostly 18th and 19th century ceramics, nails, and other hardware. Our most exciting finds so far include an intact bottle, a clay marble and parts of a ceramic pipe.  

Our excavated pits are deep!
