Today's field trip takes us to Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia.  There are so many options to explore on their website.  Below is just one of the many videos you can watch.  This video is about the preservation of textiles and clothes from the 18th century.  Interesting to think of the careers possible in the world of preservation.   

Colonial Williamsburg is the largest outdoor living museum in the country, upholding our educational mission through immersive, authentic 18th-century experiences and programming for our guests.  In 1926, the Reverend Dr. William Archer Rutherford Goodwin, with the financial backing of John D. Rockefeller Jr., began to restore Williamsburg to its original colonial state, starting with the purchase of the historic Ludwell-Paradise House.  Today, Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area houses restored and historically preserved buildings, 88 of which are originals.
