The Hidden City: Archaeology in Greater Philadelphia

Wednesday March 13

6:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

at Independence Visitor Center (599 Market St, Philadelphia, PA 19106)

Rebecca Yamin, PhD, historical archaeologist, takes us on a trip down Alice’s rabbit hole – digging underneath parking lots, National Park sites, and demolished buildings, she uncovers Philadelphia hidden past through fragments and trash left by our predecessors. Recent sites covered during her talk include the President’s house in Independence Mall, Revolutionary camp sites in Valley Forge, and workers’ houses where the Pennsylvania Convention Center now stands.
