Annual Event

Taylor Bray Farm Update

Saturday, October 7th @ 1pm

 Free with Museum Admission

The 2016 field season at Taylor Bray Farm investigated the area around the ca. 1640 Richard Taylor house that was discovered back in 2012. In 2016 archaeologists identified colonial trash deposits, two 17th century farm buildings (the only ones yet discovered on Cape Cod) and a 6000-8000 year old Native American projectile point. The 2016 dig represented the last year that work will be conducted on this important site. This talk will present a summary of all that the Taylor Bray Farm community archaeology program has found over the years at this very important site.
