Backyard Archaeology: Piecing Together Local History One Fragment At A Time Saturday, July 15, 2017 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm Havens Barn
Chris Pickerell, a Marine Biologist and Director of the Marine Program at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County and a serious local history enthusiast, will present pieces from his collection, a treasure trove of local historic artifacts. A dig in his yard in Southold a few years back yielded a museum worthy assemblage of early 18th century artifacts that reveal details of how early residents lived. These objects as well as antique bottles found while scuba diving around Shelter Island, and early 1800s redware pottery from Greenport will be on view. Attendees are invited to bring in their own locally found artifacts for identification. Light refreshments will be served. $8.00 suggested donation per person.
