Summary

Since the establishment of Minute Man National Historical Park (MIMA) in 1959, archaeological research has been an important and valuable tool for providing information crucial to the interpretation of its cultural resources (Regional Director 1961). To this end, archaeological research has been conducted over the course of 23 years, beginning in the early 1960s (Synenki 1987). While this research has provided valuable information, not only did important interpretive questions remain, but it was clear that the existing archeological database was inadequate for the effective management of the Park's resources. In 1984 an "Identification and Evaluation" study, under the auspices of the MIMA Archaeological Project, was initiated to remedy some of these inadequacies. This volume presents the results of the interdisciplinary investigations of the historical-period sites.
