Archaeology in the District

A Presentation by Archaeologist Dr. Ruth Trocolli

City Archaeologist Dr. Ruth Trocolli and her staff are responsible for the many archaeological sites in the District, including prehistoric and Native American sites. These sites contain remains of historical significance that contribute to our knowledge of the city’s cultural past. Come hear Dr. Trocolli and her staff talk about archaeology in the District and what they have been unearthing recently, including some exciting finds from a burial site in Georgetown. They’ll be bringing some interesting finds for you to handle, too!
