Evidence of the past is all around us, from old place names, street names, churches, houses and cemeteries. But what lies beneath? Archaeology gives us stories to tell about Native Americans who lived in this area for thousands of years as well as the lives of farmers and others who lived here before suburban development.
Dr. Ilene Grossman-Bailey, a Cherry Hill native and Cherry Hill High School West 1975 graduate, professional archeologist and president of the Archeologist Society of New Jersey, will present an overview on Cherry Hill archaeology and archaeological sites titled, “Cherry Hill: Looking Below the Surface,” on Tuesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. at the Cherry Hill Public Library lower level conference center, 1100 Kings Highway North, Cherry Hill.
There is no cost to attend.
