“Tombstones & Trowels” in Haverhill
November 27, 2012
The Haverhill Historical Society hosted an Archaeology Open House in honor of National Archaeology Day and Massachusetts Archaeology Month. The "Tombstones & Trowels" event included tours of the museum's archaeology exhibit, a scavenger hunt in a 17th century burial ground, refreshments, and a hall with different activity stations. In the hall, visitors were able to cross-mend redware potsherds, view "tools of the trade," make paper tombstones, excavate a mock dig, and clean artifacts.
