Archaeology in D.C.

Guest Host:

Christina Bellantoni
Archaeology in D.C.

The history of the District of Columbia pre-dates the formation of the city itself. The story of its early inhabitants can often be found in the soil beneath the modern metropolis.

Human activity in the District of Columbia pre-dates the formation of the city itself. Early inhabitants left artifacts and traces of rituals, gatherings that continue to be unearthed today. We talk with D.C.'s archaeologist about the number and diversity of significant historic sites throughout the city and speak with a parks advocate about being good stewards of those sites today.
