Archaeologist Craig Chartier will discuss his excavations at Taylor Bray Farm in Yarmouth.  His site examination in 2012 has revealed new evidence about the Native community that lived in the area when the first Europeans began to settle in the 1640’s, as well as what a typical village may have been like.  He will also discuss new information about why it has been difficult for past archaeologists to positively identify Native village locations.


Admission: Free with Admission to the Museum (Adults: $10, Seniors: $7, Children ages 3-12: $5, Children under 3: Free)
