Rediscover Custis Square an archaeological experience at Colonial Williamsburg
This event is going on this Fall 2022. See Dates and times here
This program is great for kids and adults and especially those who like the archaeological side of history.
Come and take a guided tour through Custis Square, where archaeologists have embarked on a five-year exploration of the four-acre home and early 18th-century gardens of John Custis IV. You will learn about his time in the burgeoning capital city of Williamsburg and what our previous excavations have revealed about the wealthy planter and statesman—and talk with archaeologists in the field about what we’re learning from the current project!
