280 Main Street
Amherst, MA 1002 United States
Sponsored by: Emily Dickinson Museum
View Emily Dickinson’s world through the eyes of an archaeologist during this presentation at the Museum. Faculty and members of the University of Massachusetts Amherst archaeological field school will present findings from their work on the grounds of the Emily Dickinson Museum in the summer of 2018. Their work sheds new light on the location of a former Dickinson family barn and well. Archaeobotany research– a special branch of archaeology studying plant remains in the soil–began at the Museum in 2017 and has continued in 2018. See firsthand how archaeology informs the Museum’s preservation and restoration projects!
