York County is giving locals the chance to clean artifacts.

The county’s artifact “Wash and Talk” will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., April 13, at York County’s New Quarter Park.

Volunteers will wash and examine fragments associated with Native Americans, 17th-century settlers and inhabitants of an 18th-century manor overlooking Queen’s Creek, according to a news release from the county.

Once cleaned, professionals from the Fairfield Foundation will analyze the fragments of ceramics, glass, metal, brick, plaster, oyster shells and bones to prepare for interpretation.

The event is free but registration for the program is required.

To volunteer, call York County Parks, Recreation and Tourism department at 757-890-3513 or email michael.wilcox@yorkcounty.gov.
