The Wakefield Estate’s Summer Archaeology Institute is designed for high school students interested in an unusual outdoor summer experience, or like learning about history or archaeology. Participants conduct a genuine archaeological excavation on site under the direction of doctoral candidates from Boston University. The institute is a two-week course that includes a field trip to visit other active archaeological sites in the Boston area. Participants are welcome to attend back to back sessions.
