Since antiquity, the fall line of the Rappahannock River has served as a bridge between ecosystems and cultures. Join historian and University of Mary Washington professor, Dr. Jason Sellers, for a guided walk along the scenic Heritage Trail to learn how indigenous peoples have resided and interacted here, from prehistory to the modern era.
Participants will meet at the restrooms at Old Mill Park and will walk along the Heritage Trail upriver and then walk back to their cars.
If there is inclement weather, the rain date is Thursday, June 10.
Dr. Jason R. Sellers holds graduate degrees from the University of California, Irvine, and an undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a cultural and environmental historian of 17th-and 18th-century North America interested in landscapes and bodies, and is currently working on a project that explores the interactions of Munsee Indians and European colonists in the 17th-century Hudson Valley. He offers courses on colonial North America, Native American history, and environmental history.
