State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5/NHA member; $7/NM

SCRAP is the State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program that engages volunteers who work with professional archaeologists to investigate sites around New Hampshire that help tell the story of past residents.

Projects have included caribou hunting sites from the end of the Ice Age, fishing areas used for thousands of years, Native American agricultural and fur trade sites from the time of first contact with Europeans. More recent abandoned 19th century industrial centers have also been unearthed.

Find out how these projects have provided information about the history of the place we now call New Hampshire and the ways  past residents interacted with the natural resources and discover how you can be involved in future projects.

Presentation by Richard Boisvert, State Archaeologist with the NH Division of Historical Resources, Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer.
