The Knickerbocker Historical Society has graciously approved a public archaeology excavation to locate a home built on the property possibly as early as 1707, prior to the Knickerbocker Mansion built by Johannes Knickerbocker III ca. 1770. This call is for archaeology volunteers to excavate and staff the project, which has a goal of promoting archaeology and historic preservation in New York State by engaging the public in an archaeological excavation. Students, avocationals, and professional archaeologists are all welcome to apply!

Snacks will be provided to all archaeology volunteers by the Knickerbocker Historical Society and rough camping overnight accommodations with Saturday supper and Sunday breakfast are available for people who volunteer for an entire weekend. To Apply Please email your contact information, a description of your previous archaeology experience (e.g., a resume or curriculum vitae), and a brief statement about your interest in the project to Vivian James
