A Special Archaeology Tour With Professor Joe Diamond

Join SUNY New Paltz Professor Joseph Diamond for a special tour of an archaeological excavation site on the grounds of Historic Huguenot Street and learn about the artifacts left by the original settlers and the Native Americans who came before them. Every summer professor Diamond brings students from his field school to conduct a live archaeology dig on site. Many of the class’s findings over the years are household items most likely left behind by Huguenot settlers or Lenape tribes. However, Diamond and his students have found a number of prehistoric pointed spearheads dating back as far as 5,000 years.

$15 to attend. 10% discounts for member, seniors, students, active military members, and veterans. Beverages, such as cider, beer, and seltzer will be available for visitors to enjoy. Pre-registration is highly encouraged. 

All tours begin at the DuBois Fort Visitor Center (81 Huguenot Street).
