New England Historical Archeology

New England Historical Archeology


The Dublin Seminar for New England Folklife Annual Proceedings 1977

This publication is a collection of papers presented in June of 1977. The conference was organized on the premise that important but unrecognized work in historic archeology was being undertaken in New England by individual property owners, by local and municipal historical groups, and by universities, colleges, and schools. Organizers attempted to bring together everyone who had looked for clues to New England’s past by digging below the soil.
