Milwaukee Community Archaeology Project research participants will present brief papers on archaeological research at the Cappon/deSwarte farmstead. Papers will cover genealogy, historical research, and analyses of the archaeological remains uncovered during the November 2018 excavations in and around the deSwarte barn. Presenters will include high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, professional archaeologists, deSwarte descendants and community members from the Milwaukee area who worked directly on the project. This is the culminating event of an 18-month pilot research into early Euro-American farmsteaders who lived on what is now the Center’s property. Appropriate for both adults and teens.
Free to all, but registration is requested.
