On International Archaeology Day, park rangers at Lowell National Historical Park led 31 people on an archaeology walking tour of Boott Mills.  Visitors got a glimpse of some of the archaeology that underlies the modern city of Lowell and toured the historic landscape and structures of the Boott Cotton Mills, including mill buildings, canals, and housing, as park rangers peeled back the many layers that make up two centuries of work and habitation.
