Cottrell-Baldwin Series: Mark Doperalski & David Trubey

Dive into the History of Livermore Falls, NH

Join the New Hampshire Department of Natural and Cultural Resources' archaeology team to learn the details of the archeological discoveries at Livermore Falls State Forest in Plymouth. This area was initially excavated to investigate Post-Contact archaeological deposits associated with the 19th and 20th century industrial complex and associated residential occupation known as “The Hollow.” 

However, during their excavations a somewhat substantial Pre-Contact Native American archaeological deposit was also identified including the discovery of a fire hearth radiocarbon dated to roughly 3,000 years ago.

Learn the fascinating details of the site and how DNCR archaeologists uncovered heretofore unknown history at Livermore Falls.

NOTE: Masks are recommended for all attendees. Registration will be limited to a maximum of 50 people at each of the 4 sessions. Space is limited. If you cannot attend, please let us know ASAP so we can offer a slot to those on a waiting list.
