New York City Archaeology Then and Now: Continuing Stories from the Underground
Sunday, May 4, 1:00-3:00 pm
The 34th Annual Professional Archaeologists of New York City (PANYC) Symposium on New York City Archaeology takes you on a tour back through time—and below street level. Some speakers will revisit archaeological sites decades after excavation, while others describe how their early investigations informed their later work and careers. Images of site excavations more than a half-century ago will be compared with photographs of the same areas, long since developed, as they appear today.
Co-sponsored by PANYC.
