In this presentation, Dr. Allison McGovern will discuss the results of recent archaeological investigations carried out in the Lower East Side of NYC. This neighborhood became home to a sizable European-Jewish population in the late 19th century, and a methodology was developed for investigating the archaeological potential for most of one city-block in relation to this history. The results of the investigation shed light on development and redevelopment of the neighborhood, and its impacts on archaeological traces at an urban site.
Please join us Tuesday, November 9th at 7pm for our third Digital lecture. We will be hearing from Dr. Allison McGovern, the Robert D.L. Gardiner Writing Fellow at the Gotham Center for New York City History. Her talk is entitled Privies and Such: A Report on Archaeological Investigations in the Lower East Side.
