Harvard University's 1650 charter founded a multicultural educational setting when it committed the new institution "to the education of the English and Indian Youth of this Country in knowledge and godliness." The Harvard Yard Archaeology Project contributes to renewing that commitment by seeking deeper knowledge of seventeenth-century Harvard College and the Native American and English students. Join Diana Loren, Director of Academic Partnerships and Museum Curator, and Patricia Capone, Patricia Capone, Museum Curator, Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology in a presentation of the project's findings to date, including printing type from the first printing press in the British colonies and the results of the fourth excavation in Harvard Yard, conducted in 2014.

Digging Veritas: The Archaeology and History of the Indian College and Student Life at Colonial Harvard, an exhibition at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, will be open following the lecture until 9:00 pm.
