For the week of Thanksgiving, let’s visit Plymouth Colony and the history of our earliest pilgrims. The Plymouth Colony Archive Project is a wonderful resource for primary resources, scholarly books, and historic images. There are fully searchable materials such as court records and laws, maps, and individuals’ journals and memoirs. View excavation projects and the objects found by archaeologists near Plymouth Rock.
