Digging for History in Danvers!

Dig for History at the Rebecca Nurse Homestead in Danvers as part of Trails and Sails!

Come to Rebecca Nurse Homestead and get a liitle dirty as you become an archaeologist for the day! The Rebecca Nurse Homestead was at the center of a summer archaeology program, run by the University of Southern Maine and Phillips Andover Academy, teaching students of all ages how to become archaeologists. Now it’s your turn. Thousands of artifacts have given a glimpse into the lives of those who have walked these grounds for the past millennia, many now on display. What will you uncover?
