Allen Tavern Archaeological Dig

The department of history is currently involved in the excavation of the Allen's Tavern on the campus grounds. The tavern, which dates back to the 1760s, was a center of resistance to the British Empire and a meeting place of revolutionaries including Alexander Hamilton and William Livingston.

Students have been, and will continue to, be involved in the project of excavation, artifact retrieval, and historical analysis.
