Unearthing the Clues at the Burnham Garrison

  • Durham Town Hall Council Chambers 8 Newmarket Rd Durham, NH (map)

The Durham Historic Association will host "Unearthing the Clues at the Burnham Garrison" on Saturday, January 26th at 1 p.m. in the Durham Town Hall Council Chambers.  

How did residents of the Oyster River Plantation live during the 1600’s and what articles did they use in their homes?  Archaeologist Meghan Howey will share some surprising discoveries about life in Durham more than three centuries ago.  Professor Howey and her crew have been surveying the Burnham Garrison site, one of the fortified houses on the Oyster River that withstood many attacks, including the French and Indian attack of 1694.

Refreshments will be served.  Snow date is Sunday, January 27th.
