Fit for a King: Archaeology of Joseph Bonaparte's Point Breeze Estate
7:00 PM

Presented by Michael J. Gall, Principal Senior Archaeologist at RGA, Inc. and Richard Viet, Professor of Anthropology and Chair of the Department of History and Anthropology at Monmouth University. Joseph Bonaparte, former King of Naples and Spain, fled to America in 1816 and created a lavish estate at Point Breeze in Bordentown, New Jersey.  A mysterious fire destroyed the structure in 1820 and Joseph rebuilt on a different site. Join us for a look into this collection to discover how one of North America’s finest houses looked and how Joseph utilized the estate as a public stage as he sought to manage his image as a king in exile.  Registration required.
