If you're looking for something to do to escape the rain,
Friday and Saturday only archaeology labs at Monticello will be open to the public.
Archaeologists at Thomas Jefferson's home will be giving guided tours to the dig sites as well as letting tourists inside their labratories to browse the plates, bottles, and pipes used by Jefferson himself.
"We have prehistoric artifacts from occupations prior to the Jefferson family and the historic family, but the majority of them are Jefferson period so we're talking mid 1700s as a starting date," Archaeological Research Coordinator Sara Bon-Harper said.
Tours start at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm.
