You are cordially invited to attend our October meeting on Saturday., October 26, noon, at the Heritage Center, 225 W. College St, downtown Murfreesboro. Our guest speaker is Tennessee State Archaeologist and Director, Tennessee Division of Archaeology, Michael C. Moore, who will be presenting “Archaeological Expeditions of the Peabody Museum in Middle Tennessee, 1877-1884.”
The Peabody Museum at Harvard University sponsored archaeological explorations across Middle Tennessee between 1877 and 1884. Extensive field records and artifact collections from 38 site investigations were brought to light during three research trips to the Peabody Museum and Harvard University Archives between 1998 and 2002. This presentation will review the records and artifacts from these expeditions, as well as how this new information served to revise our understanding of late prehistoric settlement (dating AD 1000-1475) in the Middle Cumberland Region.
