Massachusetts Archaeology Month 2014

Massachusetts Archaeology Month 2014

October is here and in Massachusetts that means one thing: ARCHAEOLOGY MONTH!

Massachusetts Archaeology Month 2014 is packed with high-quality events to suit any interest.  With nearly 100 events in 50 cities and towns across the state, there is sure to be something in your area.

A calendar of events with all the details is available online here: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/mhc/mhcarch/arch_month/archidx.htm  And printed copies of the calendar and poster are available by emailing: jennifer.poulsen@sec.state.ma.us.

This year’s poster image features artifacts from the Three Cranes Tavern site in Charlestown, MA. The site was used as a tavern from 1635 until it was burned down on June 16, 1775 during the Battle of Bunker Hill. More information about the site featured on the poster is available here: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/mhc/mhcarch/arch14/Three-Cranes-Tavern.pdf and here: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/mhc/mhcarchexhibitsonline/threecranes.htm

Check the calendar to see the events MAECON will be hosting this October including:

“Archaeologist in the Classroom,” a virtual visit with City of Boston archaeologist, Joe Bagley

and
