A few weeks ago landscapers at the University of Richmond found a deposit of pottery and glass that appears to belong to the early 20th century, when this land was Westhampton Park at the end of the streetcar line. Since then, students in the ‘Introduction to Archaeology’ class have been excavating the site, right outside Maryland Hall. AIA members and friends are invited to join us this Saturday, November 2, from 9 am – 12 noon. Volunteers are needed to help complete the excavation soon, before the landscapers need to finish their work!
(Maryland Hall is #110 on the campus map, or 110 UR Drive.)
