An educational tour allows teachers and students to learn in new environments and from people with a variety of experiences and perspectives. For example, the events planned to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Everard House are bringing together the work of scientists, researchers, archaeologists, architects, and more for visitors to experience in Colonial Williamsburg.

 

Events include a series of tours led by curators, archaeologists, architects, and research staff who share their expertise and knowledge about lessons learned through the home’s restoration process. Understanding the lives of three centuries of residents, from furnishings to excavations, exemplifies the different skill sets and incredible collaboration that help us all to learn from the past.

 

Colonial Williamsburg also offers guided tours of the Archaeology Labs that teach how artifacts and remains “help illuminate history and inform Colonial Williamsburg's interpretations.” Guests have the opportunity to view archaeological objects and hear about current research, excavation techniques, curatorial efforts, and the functions of different labs.
