In this presentation, Dr. McGovern will discuss how archaeology has contributed to documenting Long Island's ancient Native American past. Referencing data from archaeological investigations on eastern Long Island, she will discuss how Native American artifacts have been collected by amateur and professional archaeologists through time, and how the process of collecting has framed the general public's understanding of indigenous histories on Long Island.
Dr. Allison McGovern is a professional archaeologist with Richard Grubb and Associates and a Gardiner Writing Fellow at the Gotham Center for New York City History. She integrates archaeology with historic research methods in her preservation work.
