Participants will explore the history and landscape of 1600's New England, with an emphasis on the role of geography and place. This is an opportunity to engage deeply with the region by visiting and learning at major historical landmarks, museums, and libraries that together house collections and exhibitions that bring to life a complex story of land, power, identity, and community.
