Explore daily life at the Alden House in the 17th Century with historian and curator Stephen O'Neill.
Alden Archaeology: Life in 17th Century Plymouth Colony
What was daily life really like at Alden House during the 17th century? Join historian and curator Stephen O'Neill for a virtual talk about famed Mayflower passengers John and Priscilla Alden and their original homestead in Duxbury.

Stephen is the executive director of the Hanover Historical Society and guest curator for the archaeology exhibit at Alden House. The site of the Aldens' first house in Duxbury was excavated in 1960, uncovering thousands of objects and forming a remarkable and important collection. Stephen's talk will highlight clues about the architecture of their home, the patterns of their daily routine and the layers of history spanning the years of this 17th-century site. The exhibit is featured in a newly published catalogue that was written by Stephen and includes stunning color photography and recent scholarship by
archaeologists. The catalogue is available for purchase at www.alden.org.
