An amateur archaeologist himself, Thomas Jefferson loved learning about the past and is credited by some for setting the precedent for modern archaeological science. Join Poplar Forest’s archaeologists for a 60-minute walking tour focused on the latest archaeological dig sites and discoveries on the plantation. You are also welcome to visit the Archaeology Lab and view a special display of artifacts 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 as tour space is limited. Reservations can be made by calling the Museum Shop at (434)534-8120.
