It’s quite something to see artifacts from your own lifetime excavated in an archaeological dig! #digMass #recenthistory #genXJust found a tape of New Edition’s self-titled 1984 second album. Found at the bottom of the 1980s fill behind 6 Hudson St. We think that we have reached the bottom of the fill, today, and hope to be digging in the original yard deposits, soon . #digBOS #digChinatown #Boston #chinatown #archaeology #science #history ...

The Trustees and members of the Massachusetts Archaeological Society extend their deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Connecticut State Archaeologist Dr. Brian Jones, who died last week. We lost a champion of New England archaeology with Brian's passing and we remember his many contributions and lasting influence on the field.It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Dr. Brian Jones. He served as Connecticut’s State Archaeologist and a member of our Historic Preservation Council for the past five years. Brian brought a level of enthusiasm to his work that was infectious, a consummate kindness that never wavered, and complete dedication to everything he did. He was a patient teacher, a caring friend, and all around good person. He will be missed by all who knew him, especially his loving family. Visit Office of State Archaeology, Connecticut to read a touching note from his daughter, Fiona Jones.
Brian’s life will be celebrated on August 4th at 1 pm in the upstairs hall at the Irish American Home Society in Glastonbury. ... See MoreSee Less
