Sudbury: ARNWR presents “Archaeology of Pantry Brook Village”

March 27, 2013

| Free

“The Archaeology of Pantry Brook Village on the Davis Farm, Sudbury,” by Shirley Blancke will be presented March 27, at 7 p.m., at the Assabet River NWR Visitor Center, 680 Hudson Rd., Sudbury. Located on the bank of the Sudbury River, “Pantry Brook Village” at Davis Farm, Sudbury is a 7,000-year-old, multi-layered archaeological site. Such sites are a comparative rarity in Massachusetts. It was initially excavated in 1940-41 by the newly founded Massachusetts Archaeological Society. Recently, the work on the Concord Museum collections has made it possible to recover this information. For the first time in 70 years since the excavation was done, Blancke will share pictures of people involved and artifacts, and present an analysis of faunal and floral remains. The talk is free and open to the public. A short business meeting will take place before the presentation. For more information about the program, membership, and the Refuge, visit http://farnwr.org.
