    Overview

    The Summer Archaeology Institute is a hands-on archaeological excavation at the historic Wakefield Estate in Milton, MA, one of only a few programs of its type in the country. The institute is specifically designed for high school and college students interested in learning about local history and archaeology.

    Participants will work side by side with graduate archaeology students from UMass Boston. Each two-week session offers students a hands-on introduction to the field of archaeology through participation in an actual excavation on site at the estate.
