The president of the Millis Historical Society will discuss his experiences excavating the Bogastowe Farm during an event at the Millis Public Library on Thursday night.
It took Paul LaCroix three years to find the site of the George Fairbanks garrison , which according to a press release, was built by Bogastowe farmers as a place of refuge during Native American uprisings.
The archeological dig, which took place over the past four years, resulted in the discovery of numerous artifacts, including a wedding band engraved with initials and the date of July 3, 1895. The items discovered during the dig are on display at the library.
The event will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
