Vanderbilt Education Center Presents…
The Science of History: Lecture on Tree Rings and the History They Reveal
In celebration of the Jewish New Year for trees, Tu'BShevat, Dr. Pederson will lecture on how ancient trees and timbers from human structures are used to broaden our understanding of history. From the rise and fall of the Mongol Empire to the construction of buildings and boats locally and globally, trees are the environmental historians, which reveal events long faded from human memory and historical documents; including how the tree ring cores taken from the Bush-Holley house reveal its construction history.
Sponsored by The Greenwich Historical Society, The Greenwich Tree Conservancy, The Bruce Museum, and Greenwich Reform Synagogue.
Thursday, January 24, 2013 (snow date: January 29)
Doors open at 6:30pm; lecture begins at 7:00 pm.
Admission is FREE, but reservations are suggested. Please call 203-869-6899 x10
