"Reading the Landscape" Workshop

Sunday, April 22, 2018

Discover how to “read” old forested farmscapes and agricultural architecture to trace 300 years of land use history in Vermont. Stone walls, cellar holes, old roads, and other mysteries “lost” in the woods reveal stories of the families who shaped the landscape as we see it today. Answer questions like who lived here? How did they dress? What did they eat? What did they do for a living? In this fusion of natural history, cultural history, and forensics, participants will develop the ability to interpret cultural imprints encountered in the Vermont woods. Led by Historic Preservationist and landscape historian Samantha Ford and NBNC Staff Naturalist Sean Beckett.
