To celebrate this year’s Massachusetts Archaeology Month, archaeologists Dianna Doucette, Erin Flynn, and Suzanne Cherau of the Public Archaeology Lab will discuss how the cultural materials recovered from two excavations in Kingston illustrate indigenous life. Doucette and Flynn will share their research on the Hall Swamp site, a campsite dating to as early as 8,000 to 3,000 years ago. Cherau will discuss the Native American historical period occupation in Kingston and the findings from the Elm Street Dam removal project in Kingston. Chardonnay and hor d’oeuvres will be served.
