This is a rare opportunity to try your hand at both archaeology and masonry preservation. AiP participants, known as jammers, will have a full week of activities, including instruction in excavation techniques, historic bricklaying techniques, and cutting edge 3-D technology. For more information, visit https://adventuresinpreservation.org/fairfield. A fee is required for all workshop participants, but visitors are welcome. Local residents interested in participating for a portion of the week may qualify for a reduced fee.
Adventures in Preservation (AiP) workshop at Timberneck Farm – September 4-9, 2022
You can be among the first to help conserve the c. 1793 Timberneck farmhouse, where exhibits will feature the history of the property and the enduring stories of Virginia’s tribes. Learn traditional masonry and carpentry skills as you further the goals of the new Machicomoco State Park.
You also have the opportunity to learn hands-on archaeology skills at the nearby Fairfield plantation.
Come enjoy the best of both sites! A fee is required for all workshop participants. Register at https://adventuresinpreservation.org/fairfield3
