Colonial Williamsburg’s Department of Architectural and Archaeological Research offers extensive
interpretations of on-going excavations, guided behind-the-scenes
tours of laboratories, and public participation programs. These programs
go on year-round, though most of the effort is concentrated during the
summer months when active excavation is generally undertaken. Laboratory
tours are provided regularly throughout the year.
Students or aspiring professionals who are interested in archaeology as a
career are encouraged to investigate our internship program, where you can
acquire experience in a variety of areas.
