Old Berwick Historical Society Presents New Plymouth Discoveries
South Berwick, Maine- New revelations about trade and relations between the Pilgrims and Native Americans have come to light since archaeologists recently uncovered the first intact sections of the early 17th century settlement in downtown Plymouth, Massachusetts.
On Thursday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m., the Old Berwick Historical presents Dr. David B. Landon, who will discuss recent the archaeological excavations made at his Plymouth field school. The lecture will be held at the Berwick Academy Arts Center in South Berwick. Admission is free and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted.
For several summers, Landon has led a group of undergraduate and graduate students in a Plymouth excavation offered through UMass Boston's College of Advancing and Professional Studies. In 2016, they unearthed the site of the original Pilgrim settlement, discovering 17th century pottery, tins, trade beads, musket balls and other findings.
“Dr. Landon will be telling us about an interesting aspect of the early items that have been excavated,” said Nicole St. Pierre, Program Chair for the society. “They include large numbers of Wampanoag artifacts alongside the colonial materials. These items illustrate patterns of cultural exchange and interaction in the early Plymouth Colony.”
Landon is the Associate Director of the Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at UMass Boston. He received his Ph.D. in 1991 from Boston University.
Landon's research interests are the archaeology of historic and industrial period sites, environmental archaeology, zooarchaeology, and archaeological science. He has published in more than a dozen journals and has received funding for projects supported by the National Science Foundation, USDA Forest Service, National Park Service, Smithsonian, and other government and private sources.
The Old Berwick Historical Society’s 2018 lectures and hikes are generously sponsored by Kennebunk Savings and supported by historical society members and donors. More information is available at
