Minute Man National Historic Park: Archaeological Overview and Evaluation

Author(s): Vernon G. Baker

Year: 1980


The present study of Minute Man National Historical Park contains two major sections. First is a summary and analysis of previous archeological work. This includes a description of each site and its artifactual material as well as a general synthesis of all the past work. Emphasis is placed on research objectives and methods, particularly the ways in which documentary data have been utilized. Since none of the results of archeological research has been published, the present study will make these data more accessible. The second section is an evaluation of the park's archeological potential. This section discusses the relationships of past and future archeological research to management and research objectives. It summarizes these objectives and needs, outlines the interpretive value of past research, and makes recommendations for future work.
