October 2010 Is Massachusetts Archaeology Month

Massachusetts Archaeology Month  Last night I attended a lecture at the Jason Russell House in Arlington. The lecture was sponsored by the Arlington Historical Society and the Cyrus E. Dallin Art Museum.

Patricia Capone of the Peabody Museum at Harvard spoke on Unlocking Arlington’s Past: Archaeology and Native Americans of the Region.  Her talk focused on an archaeological project at Harvard where the remains of Harvard’s 1655 Indian College are being unearthed in Harvard Yard.

Turns out that October 2010 is Massachusetts Archaeology Month.  Events are offered all over the state this month.  Here are some of the free events:
