Come explore the “Alden First Site,” one of Duxbury’s archaeological treasures, and hear recent scholarship about Mayflower Pilgrims John and Priscilla Alden’s first home. Program includes a tour of the Site, updates on a recent survey of the neighboring Henry Samson site, and activities for kids. The Alden Kindred of America hired archaeologist Roland W. Robbins to excavate the Alden site in 1960 and is currently partnering with the University of Massachusetts to research the artifacts from the 1960 excavation.
