A Walk Back in Time: The Secrets of Cellar Holes
Tuesday, April 16, at 6:30
Presenter: Adair Mulligan

Northern New England is full of reminders of past lives: stone walls, old foundations, and a century-old lilac struggling to survive as the forest reclaims a once-sunny dooryard. What forces shaped the settlement, and later abandonment of these places? Adair Mulligan explores the rich story to be discovered in what remains behind. See how one town has set out to create an inventory of its cellar holes, piecing together the clues in the landscape. Such a project can help landowners know what to do if they have archaeological sites on their land and help stimulate interest in a town's future through its past. 
This is a NH Humanities program; it is free and open to the public.

New Hampshire Wildflowers
Saturday, May 4 at 10:30
Presented by Bob Holmes


This presentation will run approximately 50 minutes and is in two sections.  The first section will deal with Wildflowers (more than just a pretty face). We will discuss the important role they play for pollinators and beyond.  The second half of the presentation will focus on the wildflowers we can find in our backyards, fields, roadside, and forests. We will focus on identifying them and tie this into the scavenger hunt for wildflowers, which will run concurrently with the talk.

Traces of the Trade
Filmmaker Katrina Browne discovers that her ancestors, residents of New England, were the largest slave-trading family in United States history, operating their business from 1769 to 1820. Browne and nine of her relatives explore the history of their family and slavery in this documentary, traveling to Rhode Island, Ghana, and Cuba. The film asks the question: what would repair for slavery, both spiritual and material, look like?
