Join archaeologist Eric Lott for a discussion on the Bull Brook Site, an over 12,000-year-old Paleo American archaeological site in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and the broader context of the ancient indigenous people who first settled this region.
As part of the Museum’s ongoing Native Initiative, three drills from Bull Brook are currently on loan from the Peabody Essex Museum and are on display in the Cape Ann Gallery through March 2024. The drills, presented along with a contemporary clay jar made by Gladys Widdis (Aquinnah Wampanoag, 1914-2012) in 2000 and a nineteenth-century basket made by Emma Jane Mitchell Safford (Wampanoag, 1846-1932), demonstrate the length and continuation of Native history on Cape Ann.
Lott is an archaeologist and trustee at the Massachusetts Archaeological Society, which also holds a collection of objects from Bull Brook. He first presented at the Cape Ann Museum as part of Indigenous Perspectives on Archaeology on April 16, 2022 a panel with Linda Coombs (Aquinnah Wampanoag) and David Weeden, (Mashpee Wampanoag).
