Dig Boston: How, When, and Why Archaeology Happens in the Hub While Boston’s history began many thousands of years ago, archeological investigations are a relatively recent development. Decades of professional and avocational archaeological work have revealed a complex narrative of Boston’s deep history that can only be known through archaeological investigation. City Archaeologist Joseph M. Bagley discusses the ins and outs of conducting an archaeological dig in Boston through the lens of recent excavations at Old North Church, the Seaport Shipwreck, and Malcolm X’s house.
