MEREDITH — On Tuesday, May 6 at 7 p.m. the Meredith Historical Society will host State Archaeologist Dr. Richard Boisvert. Dr. Boisvert, a Paleoindian specialist, will discuss his research of our earliest NH residents, the Paleoindians, and how they adapted to a harsh and rapidly changing environment more than ten thousand years ago. The Paleoindians arrived here as the territory began a thousand years of reemergence of glaciers and extreme cold weather. However, the region also abounded with grazing animals such as mammoths, musk oxen and caribou, as well as the materials needed to create tools and weapons for hunting. Since he has directed NH field schools and research on Paleoindians for more than 25 years, Dr. Boisvert has a wealth of knowledge to describe their lives in detail.
Dr. Boisvert grew up in New Hampshire and received his MA and PH.D. from the University of Kentucky. Following a career in Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, Ohio, France, and Quebec, he returned here to his native state. He is the current NH Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer.
Admission is free and the public is welcome. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact 279.2275.
