Contemporary Archaeology Adult Lecture Series: Starts this Friday

Lecture Series: Contemporary Archaeology with Eugene Boesch

These presentations will cover how archeology intersects with history, culture and the environment. The topics are the U.S. Radium site and the young women employed as watch dial painters; one of the most infamous incidents in American industrial history, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire; aspects of the interred enslaved population of colonial New York City’s 18th Century African American Burial Ground; and the John Jay Mansion and its role as an African American Underground Railroad Heritage site.

Eugene Boesch, of Mahopac, has undertaken archaeological investigations in the Hudson Valley area for 30 years.  His work has primarily focused on Native American cultures and adaptations in the Eastern Woodlands of North America and on early Euro-American settlement in the Hudson Valley region. He has also worked in Israel, California, and the Illinois River Valley. Dr. Boesch teaches at Adelphi University and Westchester Community College, and is a member of the Westchester County Historic Preservation Advisory Committee and the Putnam County Historic Preservation Advisory Commission.

4 Fridays, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm, Begins December 1
Fee: $72; Member $60
