Plymouth Colony Architecture 1620-1690: From the Ground and the Books (Virtual)

January 19 @ 12:00 pm

Join archaeologist Craig Chartier for a fascinating look at 17th-century houses in Plymouth Colony on Friday, January 19 at noon in an online talk sponsored by the Alden Kindred of America.
When interest in the Pilgrims began in the 19th century, no one knew what their houses looked like. This led early researchers to draw on what they knew from standing structures. Archaeology has shed light on what houses like John and Priscilla’s “First Site” home really looked like. Craig’s talk will explore how Pilgrim structures have been interpreted with a special emphasis on archaeological findings and historical gleanings from the past quarter century. Craig Chartier has worked on sites that range from Paleoindian to an early 20th-century cemetery. His specialties are bone analysis, the seventeenth century and public education.
