Two people digging in the ground at the Archaeology Field School

Tour the Archaeology Field School

Our archaeology students have been hard at work at the Emily Dickinson Museum! Come tour their dig sites and see their discoveries firsthand on June 15 at 1 p.m. In past years, visitors have received a close-up look at remains of plants that once grew in the gardens, buried paths, water pipes, bed borders and other garden infrastructure that existed when Emily Dickinson was alive. This year, see the hard work of our Archaeology Field School students as they continue to delineate the archaeological footprint of the Dickinson home.

Image is of an ice cream cone with flowers and ice cream on stems coming out. Text reads " Enjoy seeing flowers at fall fest? Join Book and plow in planting flowers for our pick your own garden. Ice cream will be served!"
