Colony of Avalon

Real History in Real Time

With every scrape of an archaeologist’s trowel, stirring of a pot, or planting of a seed, we’re coming a little bit closer to understanding the history of the Colony and the lives of the people who lived here.

Established in 1621 by Sir George Calvert (the First Lord Baltimore), the Colony of Avalon is widely recognized as the best preserved early English colonial site in North America. Today, on-going work at the Colony is changing the way we understand that past.

Join our on-going quest to uncover the Colony with our Archaeology for a Day and Dig for an Hour programs. Or get hands on with history with our Great Colonial Cook Off
