The History Center in Tompkins County 401 E State St

Presentation of an Archaeology Program at the Eight Square Schoolhouse

Join us for our June 9th FFGN Archaeology presentation hosted by Brant Venables, Binghamton University Archaeology Doctoral Candidate, and Carole West, Eight Square Schoolhouse Program Director.

Why is archaeology important, and why is it even more significant as we move into the 21st century? How and why did The History Center become involved in this endeavor? Brant will tackle these questions, highlight several of his current archaeology projects , and then introduce the audience to our on-going summer archaeology excavation program at the Eight Square Schoolhouse, in which the public is invited to participate!

An eclectic range of artifacts from our excavations over the past few years will be on display, including several unique items from last summer’s dig! Question and answer session immediately following the presentation.
