Every October, Virginia celebrates archaeology at libraries, museums, historical societies, clubs, and at active archaeological sites. For many of this year’s events, participating venues have made arrangement, in some cases, for online activities, while other venues will be coordinating visits in a safe manner. The theme of DHR’s 2020 poster is “Women of Courage” and features information about two women and affiliated historical properties: The Millie Woodson-Turner Nottoway Allotment & Farmstead [jpg] in Southampton County and Elizabeth Key and Coan Hall [jpg] in Northumberland County.
