Battlefield Archaeology & Wethersfield in the Pequot War
October 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Kevin McBride, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Connecticut, says the Pequot attack on Wethersfield, Connecticut, in 1637, was the most significant event of the Pequot War and led to Connecticut’s declaration of war against the Pequot tribe a week later. McBride will explore the implications of the attack and its connection to recent archeological work performed at the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum.
