The Archaeology of the Americas

Saturday, October 15 at 1:00 pm

Continuing our celebration of Massachusetts Archaeology Month, archaeologist Kevin Quackenbush will discuss the archaeology of the Americas. As he considers ancient man, Kevin invites the audience to imagine that they are in the middle of an ancient continent with nothing. What would they need to survive? Could they make or get what they needed? His lively, interactive style will engage people of all ages. Artifacts, such as projectile points, scrapers, hammerstones, drills, and an axe and adze will be available for touching.
