What was the typical house like for the early settlers of New England?  What did people eat for dinner, and what did they wash it down with?  Tad Baker will explore these and other aspects of everyday living by combining history with archaeology to unearth the way people lived. He will draw upon his excavations at many 17th -century archaeological sites as well as information from surviving buildings and historical records such as probate inventories.
