Genealogical Research Assists Archeology
Christy Dolan will talk about how genealogical research was used to provide context to a Colonial Massachusetts archaeological site. Her discussion will look at an archaeological excavation conducted on the Three Cranes Tavern in Charlestown, Massachusetts. The tavern was originally built as a home for John Winthrop, the first Governor of Massachusetts, in the 1600s. He lived there for a few years before moving across the river to Boston. It was then owned by several generations of the Long family and operated as a tavern until the British burned it in the Revolutionary War. Christy will discuss the excavations, what was found, and how historical/genealogical research was used to provide context for the archaeological materials.
Registration is now open and will be open for the first 100 people
