TONIGHT @ 7:00 PM!!!

Fables vs. Forensics with Archaeologist Gail Golec

"Fables vs. Forensics" presents original research by local archaeologist, Gail Golec, pertaining to a set of human skeletal remains found in the 1880s in the town of Walpole, NH. Golec will present a case to test how the historical tale associated with those remains stacks up to the scientific and archival analysis. With some surprising and fascinating links to the region's tumultuous beginnings during The French and Indian War (1753-1764), this presentation will walk you through the violent events in Walpole in 1755 and how they relate to the human remains in question. Gail Golec received her B.S. in Anthropology from Mercyhurst College, in Erie, PA in 1999. While there, she also studied archaeology, physical and forensic anthropology. She has been a professional archaeologist for 15 years, primarily working in New England and is currently a Project Archaeologist for Monadnock Archaeological Consulting, LLC., out of Stoddard, NH.
