Traversing the winding streets of lower Manhattan where the city was first settled by the Dutch in the 17th century, this walk takes in the most significant archaeological sites of New York, including digs in Hanover Square and the Battery.  


The entire area, now studded by the iconic skyscrapers of Wall Street and international finance, is underpinned by a wealth of historical material, including old foundations, sewers, burial grounds, and other artifacts that together help to shape our picture of New York's history from the colonial era to today. The walk will also include a visit to the African Burial Grounds, a recent and very important archaeological site.


Accompanied by a trained archaeologist / expert in urban planning and history we will visit some of the city's recent archaeological sites. Together we will examine these clues, peeling back the layers of the city and unpacking its rich, deep history.
