History Bites: Preserved In Layers

Lecture Date: Thursday, April 27th at Noon

Lecture Site: Woodbury Public Library, 269 Main Street South, Woodbury, CT 06798

Admission is free. Donations accepted.

What do artifacts buried in the ground for 225 years tell us about the history of the Glebe House and its inhabitants? Was there really a tunnel dug from the Glebe to help the Reverend John Rutgers Marshall escape the hostilities of the Woodbury townspeople? From Robbins "test trenches" in 1952, to the Yale University excavations in the 1980s and the student archaeology projects that followed, join us as we "dig deeper" and discover what was found and the information that it has added to our understanding of Woodbury's historic past.
