Kids Dig! Aug. 22 at Chatham's 17th Century Dig Site
Children and teens will have a chance to join in the excavation of the c. 1664 homestead of William and Anne Nickerson, the "father and mother of Chatham," on Thurs., Aug. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon. Rain date is Aug. 29.
Kids will excavate an actual pit under the direction of archaeologist Craig Chartier, who leads the 17thcentury excavation, now in its second season. This is a rare chance to gain hands-on experience and learn how an archaeologist interprets the centuries-old mysteries hidden under the ground.
