The 2018 Wyman Tavern Lecture Series focuses on indigenous people, history, and culture into the 21st century. Basket Identification Day, supported by a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant, runs from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm with a presentation from 4:00-5:00 pm. Members of the public are invited to bring their baskets, and basket experts will be available at the full-day event to identify and record the age, origin, physical characteristics, and known history of each basket. The day will end with a talk by basket expert Lynn Murphy Clark on the history of Native American baskets in the Monadnock Region and New Hampshire, and on Lynn Murphy's family's Abenaki Indian basket history.
