The Archaeology of Home

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

Katharine Greider talks about the long history of Number 239 East 7th Street, and how, when she was told to leave her house there because it was at risk of falling down, she began an investigation into contractors' diagnoses and lawsuits, archaeology and urban history. In The Archaeology of Home: An Epic Set on a Thousand Square Feet of the Lower East Side she tells how one small house contains the history of a young country and the much longer story of humankind and the places they came to call home.
