Old Collections, New Creations: Updates from a Mayflower Family Home
Author(s): Caroline Gardiner
This is an abstract from the session entitled "New Research on the “Old Colony”: Recent Approaches to Plymouth Archaeology" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Around 1627, John and Priscilla Alden, both Mayflower passengers, moved their growing family from Plimoth Colony to nearby Duxbury. The archaeological evidence of their lives at the First Home Site has recently started to be reanalyzed. New creations include three Masters theses, a website, and an exhibit at the Second Home museum. These works provide more scholarly information about the Aldens’ lives and demonstrate engaging ways to connect the public with the past through archaeology.
