Archaeologists are opening the gates for free guided tours on the Montpelier Retreat site.

The Montpelier Project and Austral Tasmania are inviting the public to an open day on Sunday 19 April, where visitors can explore what has been unearthed on the site so far.

The free tours will start from 12pm, although group size is limited as they are being conducted on a working site. Tickets for the event have been released and further details can be found on the Montpelier Project website or Sultan Holdings Facebook page.

This unique invitation will involve a tour of the foundations accompanied by an archaeologist, who will guide visitors through the site’s history. New finds will be revealed on the day and various artefacts will be on show, which are helping archaeologists to understand the lives of the people who lived, worked and socialised there.

Interpretation of the site’s history will be incorporated within the development to reflect the indigenous and historic heritage discovered through the archaeological investigations.
