History Under Our Feet: MA Archaeology/J. Kevin "Quack" Quackenbush
Have you ever wanted to know what daily life was like thousands of years ago?
Now is your chance to get hands on experience!
The Amesbury Public Library will be hosting a program on MA archaeology, History Under Our Feet. Come enjoy this dynamic presentation where you’ll get to see and hold archaeological finds from our own region.
Join Archaeologist J. Kevin “Quack” Quackenbush at the library for a hands-on discussion of archaeology and the ancient peoples of Massachusetts and the surrounding areas. Quack, as he prefers to be called, is an avocational archaeologist as well as a former Trustee at the Massachusetts Archaeological Society and chairman of their MAS Education Committee. He comes not with just knowledge but actual ancient artifacts primarily from the New England area, and many are marvels to see!
The interests and momentum of the crowd will shape the discussion so no two presentations by Quack are ever the same. Learn how ancient man survived on a daily basis, what they used for tools/weapons, what they ate, what they wore, how they worked with fire, and much more.
