James Madison’s Montpelier’s Archaeology Department
The Archaeology Department is hiring two field technicians this winter to work on the enslaved domestic yard, the location of three duplex slave dwellings, two smokehouses, and extant kitchen. These excavations are part of the recent $10 million dollar donation received by the Montpelier Foundation to finish the mansion restoration and to reconstruct and interpret the domestic yard. Employees are full-time, given benefits (health insurance, vacation, sick leave, etc), and they have some reduced-rate housing available. http://www.montpelier.org/research-and-collections/archaeology/archaeology-technician-position
Second, they have a number of student programs for archaeology students. These include spring break workshops, two field schools, and a paid internship program. Each program includes housing. The internship requires a field school at Montpelier, but then can last for up to year of full-time, paid field opportunities, along with free housing. http://montpelier.org/studentarchaeology
All of our opportunities emphasize the importance of public archaeology, working with volunteers, local community members, stakeholders, and descendants on weeklong expedition programs (http://montpelier.org/learn).
