The Historic Archaeology of Cape Cod

Saturday, October 1 at 2:00 pm

Come and help us kick off Massachusetts Archaeology Month! Archaeologist Dave Wheelock, caretaker of the Wing Family Fort House in Sandwich, talks to our audience about the historic archaeology of Cape Cod. He’ll discuss why archaeology is important in helping us understand the lives of colonial Americans and how we use material culture, i.e. recovered trash, to determine periods of occupation, economic status, and food types and preparation. The talk will segue into gravestones of the period, as Mr. Wheelock created a reproduction of a 1757 stone for his late friend and noted archaeologist Jim Deetz.
