Laurel Hill: International Archaeology Day Lecture

Join us at historic Laurel Hill Mansion for International Archaeology Day where Rebecca Yamin will present "From Chaos to Context: Urban Archaeology in Philadelphia."  She will discuss the urban archaeological experience from beginning to end, using Josiah Eddy, an Afro-American barber whose privies were found on the Convention Center Expansion site, as an example of a person "we get to know" through archaeology, in addition to revealing current findings at the excavation site at 3rd & Chestnut Streets.

 The cost of the program is $15. Free parking is available and light refreshments will be served. 

Contact Laurel Hill at (215) 235-1776 for more information.
