Public Wash Day, April 3rd
Wash Artifacts Discovered at Fairfield Plantation

We are introducing a new monthly event! Please join Fairfield Foundation staff members for a free Public Wash Day on April 3, from 1-4 PM, indoors at the Center for Archaeology, Preservation, and Education (CAPE). Volunteers are invited to help wash and examine artifacts discovered at Fairfield Plantation in Gloucester County. Patented in 1648, Fairfield was the home of the Burwell family, one of the wealthiest and most politically influential families in Colonial Virginia, as well as hundreds of enslaved Africans from the late 17th through mid-19th century. Help us wash and analyze ceramics, glass, metal, brick, plaster, oyster shells, and bones in order to learn more about Fairfield’s early inhabitants. All ages and skill sets are welcome!

If you have any questions, please email fairfield@fairfieldfoundation.org. We look forward to seeing you!
