Trails & Sails: Digging for History


September 16th & 17th: 10:00am-3:00pm

Come get dirty with us, as you become an archaeologist for the day! The Rebecca Nurse Homestead was at the center of a summer archaeology program, run by the University of Southern Maine and Phillips Andover Academy, teaching students of all ages how to become archaeologists.

Now it’s your turn. Thousands of artifacts have given a glimpse into the lives of those who have walked these grounds for the past millennia, many now on display. What will you uncover?

1:00pm lecture in the Meetinghouse will discuss past findings from previous years.

Hosted in conjunction with Essex National Heritage Area’s Trails & Sails: Two Weekends of Walks and Water
