Learn more about the field of historical archaeology and the exciting work that historical archaeologists have carried out in the United States over the past few decades. Participants also will be updated on the progress of SUNY Potsdam’s Timbucto Archaeology Project, which is focused on a 19th-century African-American farming settlement in the Adirondacks.

Hadley Kruczek-Aaron, an assistant professor of anthropology at SUNY Potsdam, has been excavating on historic-period sites throughout the US and the Caribbean for almost two decades. She specializes in the nineteenth century Northeast US and is especially interested in documenting the everyday lives of those left out of our history books.
