French & Indian War Workshop January 22, 2011

The first workshop, focusing on the French & Indian War era, is Saturday,
January 22, 2011, and runs from 10:00 to 3:00. The workshop features experts
focusing on the material culture of the mid-18th century and the French & Indian
War.
Henry Cooke, one of North America’s premier authorities on 18th-century
clothing, begins the workshop with a presentation on military and civilian
clothing of the French & Indian War period.
Chris Fox, Fort Ticonderoga’s Curator of Collections, follows with a
discussion of 18th-century ceramics and tableware. Fox’s presentation
is based in part on his work on Fort Ticonderoga’s newest exhibition
Pottery, Pork, and Pigeons, which opened during the 2010 season.
Michael Galban and Ian Stout talk about 18th-century Native American
material culture. Galban works at Ganondagan State Historic Site and Ian Stout
has worked at Old Fort Niagara, both in western New York.
The day concludes with an opportunity for workshop participants
to examine up-close examples of mid-18th-century artifacts with the panel of experts.
