Lunch & Learn: Yesterday's Clay And Potters of Today

Thursday, August 1, 2013 12-1pm

Free for Members/$8 for Non-Members 


Join Martha Sulya, (Curator of Colonial Reproductions at Plimoth Plantation) who will share her knowledge of ceramics from the Stephen Bradford pottery site in Kingston, MA.  Excavated in 1996, three generations of the Bradford family produced commonly used household items along the Jones River from the late 18th to the mid-19th centuries. Learn the fate of the family business during an era of change. Martha will also address the use of common archaeological techniques such as mapping and excavation, as well as other less well known methods of gathering information, such as analyzing plant and animal remains. Bring a bagged lunch to enjoy while listening or buy one in our Patuxet Café.  Discussion starts promptly at noon in the Accomack Building. 


About our speaker: Martha Sulya has been the Curator of Colonial Reproductions at Plimoth  Plantation since 2004. Prior to that, she was the Site Manager (Maine properties) for Historic New England.  A former role-player at Plimoth Plantation, Martha brings a unique and knowledgeable perspective to her work, training sessions and lectures. She can often be seen in the Museum’s Craft Center creating (and interpreting) the reproduction 17th-century pottery that is featured in the Museum’s exhibits. She is a 1989 graduate of Bates College (where she majored in history) and is currently working on her thesis (Tradition and Change in an Era of Transition: The Bradford Family Pottery of Kingston, Massachusetts) at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
