Wilton Uncovered: An Exhibition 20 Years in the Making

February 18, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for our annual lecture series. February’s virtual lecture will feature Wilton House Museum Education Director Katie Watkins.

In 1998, William & Mary archaeologists uncovered the material record of the lives of nearly a century of enslaved families. This excavation recovered not only the most important available tool for understanding daily life at Wilton, but the largest collection of objects associated with Wilton’s original location in existence. In 2021, “Wilton Uncovered: Archaeology Illuminates an Enslaved Community,” displays this collection for the first time alongside Dennis Winston’s poignant artistic renderings of the community that used, loved, broke, resented, played with, and discarded the artifacts. Join us to follow the development of, “Wilton Uncovered,” and its art in this special Zoom presentation.

Suggested registration donation of $10.
