Archaeologist Craig Chartier of the Plymouth Archaeological Rediscovery Project will offer updates and insights into the Nickerson Family Association excavation project which has revealed William and Anne Nickerson's c.1664 homestead and its outbuildings as well as many fascinating artifacts that have given a window into the Nickersons' lives as pioneers in what became Chatham.
