Annual Report 2020

Robert S. Peabody Institute of Archaeology Fiscal Year 2020

(July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020)


THE PEABODY VISION I

n 1901, Robert S. Peabody (Class of 1857) established the institution that now bears his name with three goals in mind: to provide space for Phillips Academy student groups, to promote the study of archaeology and anthropology at Phillips Academy, and to foster archaeological research. Our twenty-first century vision for the Institute has remained true to Robert Peabody’s original idea: a teaching museum dedicated to the faculty and students of the Academy.


On The Cover Missing Aritfact Returned to the Peabody Illustration by John Bergman-McCool Missing for nearly three decades, the monolithic stone axe was recently returned to the Peabody Institute. The monolithic axe belongs to the Mississippian culture (circa AD 1400), and was excavated at the Etowah site in Georgia between 1925 and 1928 by Warren K. Moorehead, then-director of the Peabody. The monolithic axe is the third missing artifact found and returned to the Peabody since 2018. Consultation regarding the axe is ongoing through the Peabody’s collaboration with the Muskogee Creek Nation. The Peabody recognizes the following affiliated tribes to the Etowah site - Muskogee Creek Nation; Alabama-Quassarte Tribal Town, Oklahoma; Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma; Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians of North Carolina; Kialegee Tribal Town, Oklahoma; Poarch Band of Creek Indians of Alabama; Thlopthlocco Tribal Town, Oklahoma; United Keetowah Band of Cherokee Indians.

“Where past and present meet�


The Peabody and COVID-19 COVID-19 has not been kind to most educational and cultural institutions. The American Alliance of Museums estimates that one-third of the museums in the United States may never recover from the consequences of the pandemic. The virus has affected all programs offered by the Peabody. The shutdown in mid-March put a halt to progress on cataloging our collection, ended on-site research visits and NAGPRA consultations, indefinitely postponed repatriations, and upended our hands-on, collections-based educational programs. A hiring freeze has left us shorthanded and all travel programs have been curtailed. Despite these challenges, Peabody staff members made a quick pivot. Curator of collections Marla Taylor planned home-based collections work, largely focused on scanning photographs and archives, and completing ongoing transcription work. This is work that we have always wanted to do, but never thought we would have the time and resources. Over 17,000 images were digitized and added to our database. Curator of education Lindsay Randall developed Diggin’ In, a half-hour web series cosponsored by the Massachusetts Archaeological Society. Diggin’ In was a way to stay connected to our friends in the Gene Winter/Northeast Chapter of the Massachusetts Archaeological Society, since we have hosted their monthly meeting and lecture for many decades. Ryan Wheeler, Peabody director, collaborated with Native artists Dominique Toya and Weshoyot Alvitre to sponsor Facebook Live and Zoom events for the Andover community. We look forward to continuing many of these new programs, especially those that provide a broader and more inclusive reach.


Glory, Trouble, and Renaissance at the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology Glory, Trouble, and Renaissance at the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology chronicles the seminal contributions, tumultuous history, and recent renaissance of Phillips Academy’s archaeology program. The only archaeology museum that is part of an American high school, it also did cutting-edge research from the 1930s through the 1970s, ultimately returning to its core mission of teaching and learning in the twenty-first century.

Essays explore the early history and notable contributions of the museum’s directors and curators, including a tour de force chapter by James Richardson and J. M. Adovasio that interweaves the history of research at the museum with the intriguing story of the peopling of the Americas. Other chapters tackle the challenges of the 1990s, including shrinking financial resources, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act and relationships with American Indian tribes, and the need to revisit the original mission of the museum, namely, to educate high school students. Like many cultural institutions, the RSPM has faced a host of challenges throughout its history. The contributors to this book describe the creative responses to those challenges and the reinvention of a museum with an unusual past, present, and future. A limited number of copies are still available on Amazon.com and directly from the publisher.


Collaborative Learning The Peabody Institute widely supported coursework across disciplines during fiscal year 201920. Peabody educators taught 27 lessons, serving 37 faculty members and 1,501 students (this number includes students who visited the museum with multiple classes). [1] Human Origins

Led by Peabody director Ryan Wheeler, this course highlights the important and complex events that make up the last seven million years of human evolution. An important goal is for students to develop a critical understanding of key concepts in human evolution, including the theory of biological evolution, the differences and similarities between various hominin species, the “creative explosion” of human cognition, the concept of race and its place in scientific research and discourse, and the role of archaeology and paleoanthropology in the construction of our knowledge of the past.

[2] New Borderlands Lesson

Sarah Driscoll worked with Lindsay Randall to create a new two-day class that focused on the material culture – historical and contemporary – of borderlands in the US/Mexico region. While borders are artifacts of history and change over time the cultural processes which may be opaque and elusive elsewhere become clear at the border and helps in the formation of cultural identity. Those who live in the borderlands often create new and distinct objects that intertwines these stark cultural differences. During the class, students worked in groups and found an object that highlighted the intersection of borderland cultures. Examples of objects that students could pick from are ancient artifacts, modern art, technology, environment, cuisine, etc.

[3] A World of Difference

Working with Clair Dahm to support the reorganization of the History 300 curriculum, Lindsay Randall created the lesson A World of Difference. Throughout the activity, students explore artifacts from the collections to increase their awareness of Native American diversity through the investigation of how the influence of environments is reflected in the life ways and material culture of different tribes.

[4] Turbulent Worlds

Lindsay Randall created the cooperative board game Turbulent Worlds for Miriam Villanueva’s elective on Borders. The game highlights the issues regarding the land around the 49th parallel, which was a contested region during the nineteenth century between both Canada and the United States and native tribes, such as the Cree.

[5] Living in a Material World and Dismantling Modern Minstrelsy

Jineyda Tapia, Instructor in English, collaborated with Lindsay Randall to create a material culture lesson specifically tailored for English classes. In Living in a Material World, the students focus on a seemingly trivial object within the book, How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accent, a Russell Stover chocolate box. The aim of the lesson is to have students investigate how a particular artifact contributes to a better understanding of the story. Lindsay Randall and Jineyda Tapia created the lesson Dismantling Modern Minstrelsy that places A Raisin In the Sun into the context of the time it was written, using Jim Crow Era memorabilia. Using selected objects, Randall and Tapia thoughtfully and sensitively guided students through an examination of the artifacts as well as an investigation of how A Raisin In the Sun pushed back on the harmful caricatures present in the objects.

[6] Thursday Study Hours

In collaboration with the Academic Skills Center, the Peabody hosted Thursday night quiet study hours from 5:00-9:15pm through the year. Students are welcomed to the Peabody each week with snacks and a quiet environment to study individually or with a tutor. We estimate that just over 200 students studied at the Peabody this year. Four student proctors are involved with the quiet study hours and provide access to the Peabody library.

Collections Stewardship Recognizing that the Peabody Institute’s collaborative learning offerings at Andover and beyond are anchored in our significant collections we have begun an ambitious project to improve both physical and intellectual control over our holdings. This includes cataloging of the collections, online access, opportunities for scholars and researchers, and a focus on the Institute’s work duty program. [3] Linda S. Cordell Memorial Research Award [1] Research, Scholar Visits, and Loans

In fiscal year 2019-20, the Peabody hosted 1 research visit and responded to 27 inquiries regarding our collections. These numbers are down from previous years likely due to COVID-19 health closures. About a quarter of the research inquiries were related to collections amassed by Ross Moffett and Fred Carty. Moffett was a professional artist and amateur archaeologist who was interested in the archaeology of Cape Cod. His collection was drawing interest as scholars and museums were exploring ways to discuss and frame the impact of the Pilgrims arrival to the region 400 years ago. Carty was a prolific archaeologist in the greater Boston area whose work is an important reference for cultural resource management professionals. The remaining inquires ranged from requests of images of copper nuggets from the Great Lakes to assistance identifying handwriting on unidentified artifact tags to the involvement of the Peabody in supporting the Andover Press in the early twentieth century.

[2] Work Duty 2019-2020

Work duty at the Peabody is a major point of interaction with the institution. During fiscal year 2019-20, 16 students performed their work duty with the Peabody collections department. Collectively, the students provided approximately 200 hours of work over the school year, depending on their assigned duties. Their primary tasks included inventorying artifacts for re-boxing, proctoring study hours, and preparing objects for use in classes.

The Cordell Award Endowment was established in 2013 in honor of the late Linda S. Cordell, eminent archaeologist of the American Southwest and member of the Peabody Advisory Committee (PAC). Linda was Senior Scholar at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, recipient of the A.V. Kidder Medal for eminence in American Archaeology, and a valued member of the Peabody Advisory Committee. The award recipients in 2019-20 were Dr. Gabriel Hrynick and Dr. Arthur Anderson. Drs. Hrynick and Anderson are faculty at the University of New Brunswick and University of New England, respectively. Much of their fieldwork and research are focused in far Down East, Maine on Cobscook Bay, Washington County and they are particularly interested in the collections from the Northeastern Archaeological Survey (NAS) from the late 1940s to the middle 1950s. In addition to better understanding the NAS collection, Drs. Hrynick and Anderson are looking to identify artifacts from the very earliest period of European Interaction with Maine and the Maritime Provinces. Their current project is funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Due to COVID-19 health concerns, the Cordell Fellowship for Drs. Hrynick and Anderson will be postponed to 2021. For more on the Linda S. Cordell Memorial Research Award see our blog.

[4] Volunteers 2019-2020

Volunteers help collections staff with a variety of collections project from inventorying the collection to pest management to preparing artifacts for classes. Projects include continued pest management treatment, assisting with the full inventory of the collection, and processing archives. Volunteer activity is crucial to our success!

Collections Stewardship (cont’) [5] Ledger Transcription Project

In 2018, the Peabody began a project to transcribe each line of text in the Institute’s original accession ledgers from the early twentieth century. Original catalog records at the Institute are largely on paper – a single line of handwritten text can contain all the documented information for a specific artifact. The Abbot Academy Fund generously provided a two-part grant to support a project transcriptionist to enter all of this information into an Excel document. Thanks to the work of that transcriptionist, and Peabody collections staff, all 78,049 individual entries are now digitized!

[6] NAGPRA

The Peabody has been in the forefront of Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) compliance since the inception of the act in the 1990s. Peabody collections have included ancestral human remains and funerary objects from 124 sites in 29 states. Collections have been affiliated with 60 tribes, though the Peabody houses ancestral remains from 41 sites considered to be culturally unidentified under the NAGPRA act and rule. Major consultations resulting in affiliation of human remains and funerary objects include Etowah (Georgia) and Abbott Farm in New Jersey. Requests for repatriation and consultation with tribes continue today. We published three Notices of Inventory Completion, one corrected notice, and one Notice of Intent to Repatriate in the Federal Register this year. These notices include ancestors and belongings from Abbott Farm in New Jersey, unidentified sites in Massachusetts, and multiple sites in Florida. Consultations with tribes have included the Wampanoag, Seminole Tribe of Florida, Osage Nation, Delaware Tribe of Indians and the Delaware Nation of Oklahoma.

[7] Box Us In

The Peabody’s ongoing quest for full physical and intellectual control over the collection, the reboxing and inventory project took another massive step forward this fiscal year despite an interruption by COVID-19. With the assistance of inventory specialists John Bergman-McCool and Emily Hurley, 426 drawers were inventoried and transferred into nearly 630 boxes. This work has taken the inventory to the brink of 75% completion! This translates to counting and inventorying nearly 80,000 individual artifacts during this year alone. The inventory was slated for completion by January 2021, but circumstances related to COVID-19 has caused a reassessment of that goal. A new deadline has not yet been established, but progress will continue in whatever form is possible. The work is thorough, detailed, and invaluable to establishing intellectual control over the collection. Our sincere gratitude continues to go out to the generosity of the Oak River Foundation, Barbara and Les Callahan, and the Abbot Academy Fund.

[8] Adopt a Drawer Program

In 2013, the Peabody Institute launched a fundraising promotion called Adopt A Drawer that invites donors to support the cataloging of one of more than 2,100 artifact storage drawers at the Peabody. Work duty students and interns are heavily involved in the cataloging work. Donors receive updates on the cataloging, including before and after photos, as well as acknowledgement in our online catalog. As of June 30, 2020, generous donors have adopted 91 artifact storage drawers – 17 during this fiscal year. These drawers hold material ranging from PaleoIndian sites in New England to the Pecos Valley in New Mexico; from Florida to the homestead of a freed Black woman in Andover. As these drawers are inventoried, they will appear in the Peabody’s online catalog.

Archaeology is like any other comprehensive subject; it requires study, discriminating care, and enthusiasm. One should further add, it requires inspiration. - W.K. Moorehead


Outreach and Partnerships The Peabody embraces the PA motto of Non sibi and recognizes that our role in the community goes beyond the classroom and campus. Participation in variety of educational events and partnerships throughout the year helps us bring archaeology and anthropology to the broader community. [1]

[1] Dr. Bethany Jay, professor of history at Salem State University once again collaborated with Lindsay Randall to run a graduate class Preserving the Past: Using Archaeology to Teach History. The class focused on the nineteenth century and the African American experience. Throughout the five-day class, Lindsay modeled material culture based lessons that highlight the histories present during that period and engaged historical literacy skills. [2] Working with Ranbel Sun, Stephanie Cormier, and Miriam Villanueva and students in Outdoor Pursuits, Lindsay Randall took them to the shipwreck of the Ada K. Damon. Students had the opportunity to learn more about maritime archaeology using this accessible site.

[2] [3] The Peabody hosts Family Fun Days during public school breaks in February and April with hands-on activities for younger kids. On Thursday February 20, the Peabody hosted a Family Fun Day featuring a new game related to the Munsell color chart. Visitors tested their skill in sorting different colored slips by hue. [4] The Peabody Institute hosts the monthly meetings of the Massachusetts Archaeological Society’s Eugene C. Winter Chapter, which include lectures on all topics of archaeology and history. Meetings are held September through May, weather permitting. The lectures are open to all, including faculty, staff, students, and members of the public.

[5] Lindsay Randall attended the Society for Historical Archaeology’s annual international conference in Boston. The Peabody Institute hosted a table at the SHA’s Public Program family event at the Boston Public Library where visitors could make Munsell color bookmarks. [6] The Journal of Archaeology and Education is a peer-reviewed, openaccess journal dedicated to disseminating research and sharing practices in archaeological education at all levels. In 2017 archaeologists Meg Conkey, Dan Sandweiss ’75, Ryan Wheeler, and Nancy Gonlin founded JAE. The journal is hosted at the University of Maine’s Digital Commons website and is edited by Nan Gonlin. This year archaeologist Jeanne Moe became the editor. To read the current issue or submit an article, visit the JAE homepage.


Campus and Alumni Events The Peabody Institute participates in and hosts a variety of events during the academic year, ranging from Family Weekend in October to Grandparents’ Day in May, as well as Reunion Weekend, visits by prospective students and their families, tours, classes, signature events for the Andover community, and a number of visits with local public and private schools beyond our work with Phillips Academy students. Unfortunately, some of these events were cancelled due to the pandemic. In 2019-20 we provided these opportunities to 981 individuals.

To stay connected during the initial days of the lockdown, the Peabody launched its own YouTube channel. Marla Taylor created a LEGO stop motion video highlighting collections work and Lindsay Randall debuted ProCRAFTinating with the Peabody, a series of archaeology themed craft videos featuring her nephews. Crafts included kinetic sand, Egyptian collar jewel necklaces, woolly mammoth paper bags, and more. Peabody director Ryan Wheeler even uploaded some advanced cardboard crafting and featured object videos. The Peabody YouTube channel is also the place to find the Diggin’ It series.


Special Event The inaugural Peabody Lecture in Archaeology and Education debuted on October 19, 2019 on the campus of Tufts University. Central Connecticut State University Professor of Anthropology, Ken Feder, presented “Archaeological Oddities: A Field Guide to Claims of Lost Civilizations, Ancient Visitors, and other Strange Sites in North America,� an entertaining and eye opening tour of sites that have inspired some of the strangest, and most dangerous, ideas about North American archaeology.

From aliens, dragons, giants, and trans-Atlantic visitors, Feder explained why these amusing and seemingly harmless ideas about the American past undermine the real story of Native Americans. Feder also signed copies of his new book on the subject.


Peabody Highlights Peabody at the Addison For the full 2019-2020 exhibit season, the Peabody Institute loaned ten objects to the Addison Gallery of American Art, our fellow museum at Phillips Academy. The artifacts were for A Wildness Distant from Ourselves: Art and Ecology in 19th-Century America. The exhibition considered how the evolution of the European-American understanding of the natural world fundamentally altered the ecology of North America. From the Puritans’ seventeenth century “errand into the wilderness” to the present, the perceived dichotomy between man and nature has defined the European-American experience in the so-called “New World.” A Wildness Distant from Ourselves focuses on the nineteenth century, an era that witnessed both the extreme exploitation of the land and its peoples and the birth of a modern conservation movement.

Goodbye Rachel! In mid-April, Collections Assistant Rachel Manning chose to leave the Peabody Institute to pursue an employment opportunity that would bring her closer to her family in Albany, New York. Rachel had been a part of the Peabody for two and a half years – beginning her tenure as an Inventory Specialist before transitioning to the role of Collections Assistant in 2018. Rachel’s keen eye for detail, love for the intricate and repetitive inventory process, and depth of knowledge were appreciated by all. She established a reputation for creative and efficient ideas and always had excellent contributions to the Peabody blog. She will be missed in the Peabody basement and we look forward to a proper goodbye party in the future.

Repatriation Workshops & Conferences This year Peabody director Ryan Wheeler participated in the first repatriation workshop organized by the Southeastern Archaeological Conference, an annual gathering of archaeologists working in southern states. The format encouraged participants to visit different stations, staffed by repatriation experts focused on different aspects of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. Ryan is excited to adapt this format to a similar workshop that will be held (virtually) at the New England Museums Association annual meeting in November 2020. Ryan also attended the Association on American Indian Affairs annual repatriation conference, which is a great opportunity to connect with tribal representatives and museum personnel united in repatriation work.


In Memoriam John Lowell Thorndike ’45 (1926 - 2020)

The Peabody lost a great friend with the recent passing of John Lowell Thorndike. John was critical in the recent history of the Peabody, serving as chair of the Visiting Committee in the 1990s and early 2000s. This was a turbulent period, seeing everything from the reopening of the Peabody in 1990, engagement with Native American tribes through repatriation, and an attempt to become a public-facing institution with relevance on campus, culminating in a near-closure in 2002. He and Marshall Cloyd ’58, played a big part in the decision to keep the Peabody open and refocus our efforts on programming for Phillips Academy students.

John would visit campus at least once a year to attend the luncheon presentation of the Augustus Thorndike Jr. Internship, which he founded with his brother Nicholas (PA Class of 1951). Students selected as interns spent a year preparing a historical biographic sketch of an interesting Phillips Academy person, often an alumnus or faculty member. John remained intensely interested in the activities of the Peabody in the years after 2002. He was particularly interested in our relationship with the Pueblo of Jemez and our continued work on repatriation of Native American ancestral remains and funerary belongings. John was particularly delighted when our ceramic artist friends from Jemez, Dominique and Maxine Toya, joined one of the Thorndike luncheons. They were on campus that week to work with Thayer Zaeder’s ceramics classes, continuing our long relationship with the Pueblo. Our condolences to John’s family and friends. He will be missed.


The Peabody and The Knowledge and Goodness Campaign The Knowledge & Goodness Campaign, launched in fall 2017, is a $400 million dollar fundraising effort and the largest in the history of Phillips Academy. The Peabody Institute has a goal of $2.5 million dollars as part of the campaign, largely focused on improved collections care and storage. The Peabody Institute houses 500,000+ objects, ranging from significant archaeological collections acquired during expeditions to sites from the Northeastern United States and Canada to Mexico and Peru, as well as important ethnographic collections including baskets, pottery, textiles, and more from cultures in North and Central America. The Peabody’s current collections storage—in terms of physical space and climate control—is inadequate to maintain these collections. Objects are housed in deteriorating wooden cabinets and most collections are subject to extreme fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity that accelerate decay. The Collections Storage Revitalization Program focuses on creating a modern, climate controlled storage facility in the Peabody Institute. Major project components include installation of climate control systems and high density metal shelving to provide for the storage of valuable object, archive, and photographic collections. This is a significant naming opportunity, directly aligned with the Peabody’s 2015-2020 strategic plan. The plan states that “activities and practices that improve physical and intellectual control over collections are paramount,” noting that the “Peabody’s archives, photographs, and object collections are the cornerstone of our engagement with the curriculum at the Academy and our connection to the broader community of archaeologists, anthropologists, and Native Americans.”
