Davison Bolster tells children about Massasoit at Burr’s Hill Park

Local historian Davison Bolster spoke to about thirty children at the Warren Recreation Department summer program at Burr’s Hll Park in Warren, RI. The Park is the location where over 600 items taken from 42 Aboriginal graves in 1913 were re-interred in May of 2017. Bolster talked about how American Aboriginal people lived and how they interacted with the English Colonists who arrived in 1620. A number of items were shown that illustrated how both groups lived, including arrowheads, pottery and a variety of bowls.
