Pilgrim Walk with Robin Robertson

August 28, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$10

Follow in the footsteps of the Mayflower Pilgrims in 1620 in Truro. On a leisurely one-and-a-half-hour walk from Great Hollow Beach to Corn Hill and back, Dr. Robin Robertson puts you in the shoes of the intrepid explorers who set foot in the New World for the first time, in the bitter cold, exhausted, hungry and seasick after crossing the Atlantic in a 110-foot boat, wary of American Indians, and expecting the worst. As they explored what is now Truro, what was their reaction to the evident lifeways of the native population, and how did they justify helping themselves to food and other items that were not rightfully theirs?

Meet at 10:00 AM at Great Hollow Beach, upper parking area. Please reserve spaces in advance by calling 508-487-3397.
