Hidden Beneath Our Feet: Working Archaeology on Governors Island
Many archaeological findings on Governors Island are thanks to infrastructure improvements. It’s not archaeology vs. development, it’s archaeology because of development. Archaeologists use artifacts to tell the stories of the people who used them and their everyday life. It’s the history that’s not in history books. These artifacts found on Governors Island tell several stories. On display, we have the Native American presence and the Military presence (including family life).
This project was supported by a grant from The New York Council for the Humanities.
