Suggested Donation: $10; pre-registration required
Location: Marion Natural History Museum Lawn

Learn about, and share knowledge of Marion’s heritage during a public archaeology day. Archaeologists Dianna Doucette and Erin Flynn of The Public Archaeology Laboratory, Inc. (PAL) will present an overview of the history of Native American and early European settlement of Marion based on information from various cultural resource management investigations.

Learn what we know from archaeology about the settlement of Marion over 10,000 years ago by ancestors of the Wampanoag and the town originally known as Sippican by early English colonists.

The presentation is sponsored by the Marion Natural History Museum. The archaeologists will answer your questions and identify artifacts related to the town’s earliest residents.
