Overview
History is right under our feet; we just need to dig a little to find it. Though not the most popular construction project, Boston s Big Dig has contributed more to our understanding and appreciation of the city s archaeological history than any other recent event. Joseph M. Bagley, city archaeologist of Boston, uncovers a fascinating hodgepodge of history from ancient fishing grounds to Jazz Age red-light districts that will surprise and delight even longtime residents. Each artifact is shown in full color and accompanied by description of the item s significance to its site location and the larger history of the city. From cannonballs to drinking cups and from ancient spears to chinaware, A History of Boston in 50 Artifacts offers a unique and accessible introduction to Boston s history and physical culture while revealing the ways objects can offer a tantalizing entree into our past.
Packed with vivid descriptions and art, this lively history of Boston will appeal to all manner of readers, locals and visitors alike."
