October 11: Lecture by Amanda Sutphin

Buried Beneath the City: An Archaeological History of New York

Amanda Sutphin, Director of Archaeology at the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission, will be sharing highlights about how the archaeological study of New York reveals information about the ever-evolving city and the day-to-day world of its residents from the first traces of Indigenous societies more than ten thousand years ago to the detritus of Dutch and English colonization and through to the burgeoning city’s transformation into the modern metropolis. She will outline how and why archaeology occurs within the city and draw upon the work and archaeological collections curated by the NYC Archaeological Repository: The Nan A. Rothschild Research Center to illustrate the talk.
