The Hadley-Lake Luzerne Historical Society has announced “Understanding the Archaeology of the Adirondacks,” a lecture by archaeologist and author David Starbuck of Chestertown on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 8 pm, at the Hadley-Luzerne Public Library 19 Main Street, Lake Luzerne.
David Starbuck is a noted authority on the archaeology of the Adirondacks. He will share excerpts from his latest book Archaeology of the Adirondacks and discuss findings from his most recent Adirondack excavations. The book focuses on the varied material culture brought to the Adirondacks, and now found underground.
Starbuck’s book examines Native American sites on Lake George and Long Lake; military and underwater sites throughout the Lake George, Fort Ticonderoga, and Crown Point regions; old industrial sites where forges, tanneries, and mines once exsisted; farms and the rural landscape; and a variety of other sites, including the abandoned Frontier Town theme park, the ghost town of Adirondac, Civilian Conservation Corps camps, ski areas, graveyards, and more.
The program on September 13, 2018 is free, open to the public and handicapped accessible. For further information email [email protected]
