Hands-on Archaeology: Re-excavating the Old State House Parade Ground
October 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In 1974, archaeologists from Brown University excavated the site of an 18th century house at the west end of the Parade Ground outside the Old State House. All the artifacts were stored at the Old State House, now the office of the Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission, but the bulk of the collection was never catalogued.
Join State Archaeologist Charlotte Taylor to sort the collections, separate out the significant artifacts, and catalogue as much as possible.
