The Archaeology of Cape Cod: 13,000 Years of Native History

July 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 7:40 pm


Summary: Join Dan Zoto for a virtual presentation through time as he explores the rich Native American history of Cape Cod. Dan will use the results of his recent analysis of the Eastham Historical Society’s artifact collections to highlight technological and cultural changes over thousands of years of Native life on Cape Cod. Learn how people adapted to the Cape’s dynamic environment as it changed from a small rise on a vast coastal plain to the narrow peninsula ringed with bays, estuaries, and salt marshes that it is today. Questions and answers will follow a 40-minute presentation.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a master’s in Anthropology from the University of Connecticut.
