Take a guided tour of the Archaeology Labs and find out how artifacts, plant remains, and animal bones all help illuminate history and inform Colonial Williamsburg's interpretations. View archaeological objects and hear about current research, excavation techniques, curatorial efforts, and the functions of different labs.
