About the Event

Please join Dr. Allison   McGovern as she reveals archaeological findings on Long Island’s development   of urban centers along the eastern seaboard as well as New York City’s   metropolitan core. Dr. McGovern will explore the “forgotten and silenced”   past of Native American villages, slave and free Black communities, working-class   neighborhoods, and planned communities that existed alongside the well-known estates,   farms, and suburbs and how these various communities crafted their own   identity and culture. Co-Sponsored with the Amagansett Free Library.
