Salvage Archaeology

Virtual Event: Monday, July 20, 2020, 7:00 pm:

The Middletown Township Historical Society hosts Kristen T. Hohn as she presents "Salvage Archaeology at the Hendrickson Farm in Middletown."  In May 2019, members of the local historical community joined the Archaeological Society of New Jersey and Monmouth University to volunteer at a salvage archaeological survey at the Charles Hendrickson farmstead, just north of the Middletown Village Historic District. While the 18th century cottage has since been demolished, this presentation focuses on the history that lives on through the cultural material recovered at the site.

Ms. Hohn is a Historic Preservation Specialist and Archaeologist working for the Monmouth County Park System. Over the past decade she’s performed surveys across the Mid-Atlantic region, specializing in the contact and colonial history of New Jersey and early domestic textile production. She is currently on the board of the Archaeological Society of New Jersey.
