 Evidence of the past are 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 (CHHSW class of '75), professional archaeologist, and president of the Archaeological Society of New Jersey, will present an overview on Cherry Hill archaeology and archaeological sites.

Want to learn more?  See the full agenda for the ASNJ Quarterly Conference at Croft Farm on Saturday, May 18th or contact chhc@chtownship.com or 488-7886 for details.
