Hello and welcome to the City Archaeology Program's website! As City Archaeologist, I manage the City of Boston's growing archaeological collections, strive to make the city's archaeology publicly accessible, and work to protect and preserve Boston's archaeological heritage. I invite you to explore the past with the City Archaeology Program!
City Archaeologist Joe Bagley has been a professional archaeologist since 2002.
Joe received his Bachelors Degree in Archaeology from Boston University. For his senior thesis, he worked at the City Archaeology Lab under the previous City Archaeologist, Ellen Berkland, to analyze the Native American artifacts found on Boston Common.
Joe is currently completing his Masters Degree in Historical Archaeology at UMass Boston.
With a decade of archaeological fieldwork on Native American and Historic archaeological sites throughout New England and years of dedicated research on the archaeology of Boston, Joe brings an expert knowledge of the entire human history of Boston to the City Archaeology Program.
