Hey Everyone,

I Just wanted to show you some old canoes sunk in a lake just as we would of in the 17th century with heavy stones in them. I was told about this web site from freinds. This is a project the Nipmac Nation in worcester Ma. is doing in Quinsigumon’s Lake. The Boats are thought to be approximately from 1640 Ad to 1680 Ad bye carbon 14 testing done on mishoon #1. I thought you would all like to see these.

The Web page is http://projectmishoon.homestead.com to get more info on this project.

Thanks
Tim Turner

Hey Everyone,

Its Tim Turner again the Manager of the Wampanoag Program here at Plimoth Plantation. I just want to tell you to look for some video Blogs on Thanksgiving comming soon. I will interview one of the Pilgrims in the Village and ask them about Thanksgiving and one of our Wampanoag staff members in the Homesite about Thanksgiving too.

I am also going to give you a tour of our exzibit here at Plimoth Plantation thats is on Thanksgiving too. This exzibit go’s into the History of Thanksgiving and how it became to be the holaday we know today. The exzibit will give you a better understanding of the real Thanksgiving and not the Myth’s that we may know about today.

I look forward to bring this to you soon so Please keep visiting the blog .

Thank You!
