Native Americans have lived in southern New England for 10,000 years. Tonya Largy of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology will discuss how archaeologists learn about ancient peoples from several lines of evidence—including stone tools, ceramics, and the remains of animals and plants found during excavations—and will also explain how dates are obtained from these materials.  She will also discuss several archaeological projects carried out in Metrowest communities.  Artifacts excavated in Wayland will be available for viewing.
