What is living history and how can it help us understand what happened in the past? Join our Museum Educators for a hands-on exploration of the oral histories and traditions, objects, landscapes, and historical documents that tell us about the lives of English colonists, Wampanoag, and other indigenous people who lived on these shores in the 1600s. Then try your own hand at making history come to life!
