Revisiting Snowtown: The Archaeology of the North Shore Site in Providence @ Old State House | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

Please join Heather Olson, archaeology laboratory manager at The Public Archaeology Laboratory, Inc., for a discussion of the Providence Cove Lands Project; a large-scale archaeological excavation undertaken in Providence during the early 1980s. Her presentation will describe the original excavations and the recent cataloging and curation efforts that preserve the approximately 150,000-artifact collection. In addition, Ms. Olson will discuss the history and archaeology of the North Shore Site, focusing on the nineteenth- century working class residents of Providence’s Snowtown and the later Gaspee Street neighborhoods.
