Summer Archaeology Institute at the Wakefield Estate

The Wakefield Estate’s Summer Archaeology Institute is designed for high school students interested in an unusual outdoor summer experience, or enjoy learning about history or archaeology. Participants conduct an archaeological excavation on site under the direction of graduate students from UMass/Boston. The institute is a two-week course that includes a field trip to visit other active archaeological sites in the Boston area. Participants are welcome to attend back to back sessions.

There are two sessions offered for the summer of 2019:

  • Session I:  July 8 -July 19; M-F 9am-3pm
  • Session II: July 22-August 2; M-F, 9am-3pm
