Public Archaeology Laboratory Project Archaeologist Erin Flynn gave a presentation about the archaeology of Rehoboth, MA, at the Carpenter Museum on November 15, 2020. Click here for a 52-minute video of her talk.


(Above right) Erin has been working in the American Northeast and specifically, southeastern New England at archaeological sites for the past nineteen years. Her interests include Native American life 8,000 to 3,000 years ago in New England, but has worked on a variety of other Native American and historic sites.


The Massachusetts Archaeological Society has been recording Native American sites along the Palmer River for at least 70 years. Archaeologists are able to better understand Native American life from these artifact collections and local narratives.


(Above) Erin described the Tobey Site, one of many sites in Rehoboth that give evidence of life during the Woodland, Archaic and PaleoIndian Periods. Click here for a description of the Tobey Site by Edwin C. Ballard.
