New York State Museum Cultural Resource Survey Program (CRSP) archaeologists Barry Dale, Aaron Gore, and Steve Moragne will speak on excavations they led of prehistoric and colonial remains adjacent to the historic Lake George Million Dollar Beach.
The archaeologists will reveal their findings and answer questions about the site, as well as share their stories of working one of the region’s more significant recent digs. Native American used the area for several thousand years followed by eighteenth-century production of lime for the construction of nearby Fort George. Efforts have been underway to establish a visitor center at the site.
This free program, part of the Museum’s Science Cafe series, is Thursday, January 9 at 6 pm at The Hollow Bar + Kitchen in downtown Albany. Food and drink will be available for purchase. The Hollow Bar + Kitchen is located at 79 North Pearl Street Albany.
