Native Peoples of Truro: Making Sense of that World

Saturday, October 13 at 11:00 am  

Help us celebrate Massachusetts Archaeology Month! 
Our very special guest is Dr. Robin Robertson from the Truro Historical Society. Recent analyses of the archaeological collections given to the Truro Historical Society over the past forty years indicate that while the Native peoples on the Lower Cape lived lives very similar to Native peoples on the Upper Cape and throughout coastal Massachusetts, they exploited the natural resources and environment of the narrow land mass in distinctive ways. Dr. Robertson will take the audience through the archaeological data and explain how to interpret it to better understand the original inhabitants of this part of Cape Cod. She will also show artifacts to help bring these ancient people to life. Come and enjoy this unique glimpse of the Cape’s past.
