Digging up history at Taylor-Bray Farm in Yarmouth Port
Volunteers led by a professional archaeologist in September will follow up on historic findings from a dig at Taylor-Bray Farm in Yarmouth Port last year. They will investigate four specific areas in hopes of finding the site’s first 1640s farmhouse and prehistoric Native American campsites.
Archaeologist Craig Chartiers, who directed last year’s successful dig that uncovered 2,300 artifacts, said in a phone interview, ”We could see the outline of a home.” That home belonged to Richard Taylor, one of the first settlers who came to Yarmouth from the Plymouth Colony in 1639.
