City of Boston Archaeology Program: Shirley-Eustis House


The City of Boston Archaeology Program’s dig will be limited to 50 cm (20″) wide trenches in the areas that will be disturbed by future work. These trenches will allow us to document the presence, absence, and depth of any important features such as the kitchen or privy. We will NOT be excavating these fully if they are found, at least not yet. If found, we will spend the winter talking with the Shirley-Eustis House and the neighborhood to decide if and how much of the historic deposits should be dug before the work begins. If the decision is to excavate, we will come back in 2019 to do so.

The Shirley-Eustis House dig will begin October 1 and last 2-3 weeks. Follow along as we uncover new insights into Roxbury’s 18th and 19th-century history #DigROX #DigSEH #DigBOS (City of Boston Archaeology Program)
