May 15, 2016 Dorchester Historical Society – The History of Boston in 50 Artifacts

book cover History of Boston in 50 artifacts

2 pm, Sunday, May 15th at 195 Boston Street, Dorchester, MA  02125

The Dorchester Historical Society’s program for May is a talk by Joe Bagley, the city archaeologist, and his new book The History of Boston in 50 Artifacts.  Joe highlights a fascinating hodge-podge of history–from ancient fishing grounds to Jazz Age red-light districts–and demonstrates how these objects offer a unique and accessible introduction to Boston’s history and physical culture.

The Society will take a few minutes at the beginning of the meeting to hold its annual meeting.  Then we will hand the floor over to Joe.
