AIA Society: Lynchburg

An amateur archaeologist himself, Thomas Jefferson is credited by some for setting the precedent for modern archaeological science. Join Poplar Forest’s archaeologists for a 90-minute walking tour focused on the latest archaeological dig sites and discoveries on the plantation. View a special display of objects found on the property, and learn what they tell us about life at Poplar Forest.

Admission to the Archaeology Behind-the-Scenes Tours is included with admission to Poplar Forest; reservations are suggested.
