February Stone Soup - Digging Deeper with Archaeologist Dr. Sara Belkin
Feb.28.2018 -
Calendar Of Events & Programs


Join us for the second in the 2018 Stone Soup and Speaker series of engaging talks and delicious homemade soups. This year's theme, "Digging Deeper: Exploring the Wakefield Estate's Collections,"  allows for a deeper look at four different aspects of the estate's collections. This month, Sara Belkin, former Director of our Summer Archaeological Institute for teens, will discuss her intriguing findings and research during the past five years of digs, which focused on the Irish tenant farm family that occupied the farmhouse in the late 19th century, an interest that led to and culminated in her successful  defense  of her  doctoral dissertation in 2017.
This program will be held in the Isaac Davenport mansion located at 1465 Brush Hill Road. Save the dates - the final two 2018 Stone Soup and Speaker series will be held the final Wednesday of March and April.
