he Duxbury Ru-ral and HistoricalSociety is seekingvolunteers for another archae-ological dig. Unlike the Sec-ond Meetinghouse Dig of lastyear, this undertaking will notbe a full blown excavation.The “mini-dig” will take placeat the King Caesar House.This time, no building foun-dation is being sought. Theobject is to sink a number of small “test-pits” in an effort tolocate any shards of materialthat might shed light on whatsort of materials the WestonFamily had in the house.The King Caesar Housemuseum, represented as itlikely appeared around the1820s, is full of period objects,the vast majority of whichhave Duxbury provenance.However, few of them actu-ally belonged to Ezra WestonII, “King Caesar.” Very lit-tle is known about how theWestons furnished the house.Any scraps, shards, or frag-ments uncovered during themini-dig will add to the So-ciety’s understanding of whatthe Westons had in the houseduring the golden age of the
Weston rm.
The dig will take placedaily from Sept. 21 through 27from 1-4 p.m. Those interest-ed in participating are asked toattend an orientation session atthe King Caesar Barn on Sat-urday, Sept. 19 at 1 p.m. Thegoal of the orientation sessionis to acquaint volunteers withthe methods that will be usedand to allow volunteers to sign
up for specic shifts as their
schedules allow. The dig isopen to any interested individ-uals (children under 15 mustbe accompanied by an adult).For more information,please contact the Society at781-934-6106 or visit the So-ciety’s Web site at www.dux-buryhistory.org.
