Monterey: Archeology walk on Bidwell grounds

Kerry Lynch, senior archaeologist at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, will lead a walk and talk around the grounds of the Bidwell House Museum at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 16, where she will report on the archaeological dig done at the Museum last summer.

The soil and the materials recovered tell stories of the previous residents' agricultural pursuits, the changes in the building structure, and the everyday lives of the Bidwell family members who first began living at the site over 250 years ago.

This talk will be held rain or shine. There is a suggested donation of $10 for members and $15 for non-members.

The Bidwell House Museum is located at 100 Art School Road. Information: 413-528-6888 or
