Deck the Alley!

This coming Saturday, December 1st from 4-7pm the Elfreth’s Alley Association is hosting Deck the Alley.  This event is their annual holiday open house and offers guests the opportunity to walk through the interiors of several of the residential houses on the street.  The Philly Blog Uwishunu has a great description of the event.  Archaeologists will be at the event to discuss the excavations and display some of the artifacts recovered this past summer.  You can purchase tickets online here.  Hope to see you there!

Fall Update

It has been a busy and productive fall! Throughout the season, we have been diligently working on processing the artifacts. Thanks to a fantastic group of trusty volunteers, about a third of the artifacts recovered from excavation this past summer have been washed. If you’re interested in volunteering, check out the Volunteers Opportunity section.
