Speaker Series: Archaeologist/Geologist John Thompson (Bring your artifacts)
Monday, Oct. 6, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
Old Meetinghouse/Unitarian Universalist Church
October is Archaeology Month in Massachusetts, and we’re honored to have John Thompson with us. The meeting will be at the old meetinghouse (Unitarian Universalist Church) starting at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 6.
An entertaining and engaging speaker, John will talk about the rich archaeological history of Medfield, from the early post glacial times to the contact period when settlers came to town, and into the more recent history including the science of finding and preserving historical artifacts.
He will also talk about his work on excavation sites in Medfield like the Clark Tavern and the Dwight Derby House. He’ll show artifacts that have been found in town and preserved by the town, including the Historical Society.
If you have found an artifact, bring it to the meeting for John to examine.
