Kingston Senior Center

Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 7:00pm

Boston's Big Dig has contributed more to our understanding and appreciation of the city's archaeological history than any other recent event. Joe Bagley, city archaeologist of Boston, uncovers a fascinating hodgepodge of history--from ancient fishing grounds to Jazz Age red-light districts--that will surprise and delight even longtime residents. Each artifact is shown in full color and accompanied by description of the item’s significance to its site location and the larger history of the city. Joe Bagley studied archaeology at Boston University and UMass Boston and joined the City Archaeology Program in 2011, where he curates a growing repository of archaeological collections. 

The ongoing author series is offered by the Kingston Public Library in cooperation with the Kingston Council on Aging and the Kingston Public Library Foundation. The series is sponsored by WATD 95.9 FM Radio. Programs are held at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street and will last from 7:00 - 9:00 PM.

Westwinds Bookshop will provide copies of the books for sale and signing. Light refreshments will be offered, and although the program is free, reservations are requested.
