18th-century cufflinks excavated from a previous Harvard Yard dig.

Location:
Harvard Yard outside Matthews Hall, rain or shine

Buried trash can reveal a lot about how our ancestors lived. Ground-penetrating radar in Harvard Yard revealed a deep and dense area of 17th-century trash near the location of the long-gone Old College building, so this fall, the Archaeology of Harvard Yard class will excavate the spot. Join them as they show and discuss their findings. 

Special event. Free and open to the public.
