Waiting To Be Uncovered: Archaeology in Staunton Program

The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library is pleased to host Dr. Dennis Blanton, Associate Professor of Anthropology at James Madison University who will be speaking about archaeology in Staunton. Dr. Blanton, aided by a host of community volunteers, conducted a limited archaeological excavation behind the Woodrow Wilson’s Birthplace. Dr. Blanton will be talking about the report that was issued after the dig and about the next steps for the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library (WWPL), including a potential second investigation this summer.

The WWPL is actively seeking funding for this project. A GoFundMe page has been established for those wishing to make a monetary contribution to this year’s excavation and lab work or contributions earmarked for archaeology may be sent to The WWPL, Post Office Box 24, Staunton, VA 24402.
