Paino Visits Archaeological Field Project in Stafford

Earlier this summer, UMW President Troy Paino visited the annual Department of Historic Preservation archaeological field project.

The current excavations are focused on an antebellum garden associated with an 1840s slave quarter and kitchen quarter complex in Stafford County. The project has been led by incoming Assistant Professor Lauren McMillan for the past three summers.
