Speaker:  Professor Kevin McBride. Topic: Commemorating 380 years, the Pequot War (1636-1637) remains one of the most controversial and significant events in the Colonial and Native history of North America. Most significant were the battles of Mistick Fort and the Battle of Fairfield Swamp. Professor McBride’s lecture will explore the events leading up to the battles and the role that Battlefield Archaeology has in reconstructing the battle event, tactics and weapons used by the English and Pequot combatants.
