Saturday June 8, 2024 10:30-3:00 PM Central City, Colorado

The regular seasons offerings may be over, but we have a rare opportunity. Dr Jade Luiz is running an archaeological field school in Central City where she is excavating the remains of several brothels in the historic red-light district.

We are pleased to invite you to come up to visit on Saturday, June 8th to tour the site! Those who are interested may also have the opportunity to dig under the instruction of Dr. Luiz and her students, either on the day of June 8th or during the other volunteer opportunities Dr Luiz is opening up.

We will be there from 10:30 PM to about 3:00 PM. Please be aware that the site is located at approximately 8,500 ft in altitude on a steep slope. It is located just off a paved road, but the slope to access it is substantial. Regardless of whether you come to tour the site or to volunteer, wear appropriate clothing. Bear in mind that it is an active archaeological site.

There is no parking at the site itself. I personally would recommend stopping at the large visitor parking lot directly in front of the Central City Police Department and climbing the hill to the intersection of Spruce St and Pine St, where you will find the site.

This is a FREE activity which does NOT require a reservation! I hope that you join us and, if you are interested in further volunteer opportunities to get your hands dirty with some archaeology, Dr Luiz will be happy to provide further information!
