A History of Boston in 50 Artifacts
Written by Boston’s city archaeologist Joseph Bagley, this book is a fascinating tour of the city from underground. 50 objects ranging in age, use, and maker give readers a detailed look at life in the past. High quality photos and drawings accompany intimate descriptions of each object – where it was found, who used it, and what we can learn from it. All proceeds from book sales help fund the cost of excavations and cataloguing objects.
