The Clements Bookworm: Michilimackinac, “Where archaeology and history meet”

August 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Clements Bookworm is a webinar series in which panelists discuss history topics. In this episode, Lynn Evans, archaeologist at Mackinac State Historic Parks, will discuss how archaeology and history are used to gain a more complete picture of life on the fur trade frontier at Fort Michilimackinac. Built by the French in 1715, acquired by the British in 1761 and demolished by them in 1781, Michilimackinac has been the site of historical and archaeological research since 1959.

The Clements Bookworm: The Hacke ‘Pirate’ Atlas with Fellows Chet Van Duzer & Danny Zborover

September 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Clements Bookworm is a webinar series in which panelists discuss history topics. In this episode, past Fellows Chet Van Duzer and Danny Zborover discuss their research on the Clements Library's Hacke Atlas—a late 17th century manuscript atlas drawn from captured Spanish sea charts and one of multiple copies produced by English mapmaker William Hacke. Van Duzer will explain indications of the locations of shipwrecks in Hacke Atlases and how information about the treasure on those wrecks was later added. Zborover shares what the Hacke Atlas can tell us about the deep roots of entanglements between the Chontal Indigenous people in southern Mexico, and English, French, and Dutch pirates.
