NBC 29: Monticello Archaeologists Awarded $325,000 Grant to Expand Digital Archive. “Archaeologists at Monticello have been awarded a grant that will help them as they continue to dig and learn about the history of Thomas Jefferson and his estate. The grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities is called ‘expanding the digital archaeological archive of comparative slavery research consortium.’ It sounds like a lot but what that means is the grant is going towards Monticello’s massive digital archive. The $325,000 grant will help grow the amount of researchers that are internationally working with Monticello.”
