Archaeologist Dr. Ian C. Burrow, Vice-president and Principal Archaeologist for Hunter Research, Inc., Trenton, NJ, will be the speaker at the Madison Historical Society on Wednesday, September 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chase Room of the Madison Public Library on Keep Street.

Speaking on the latest findings at the Luke Miller forge dig on Ridgedale Avenue this past June, he will describe the results of an ongoing three-year project which has thus far involved three classes of Madison High School history students in research and archaeology under the direction of Madison High School history teacher Mark DeBiasse.9 The Luke Miller forge was in operation during the late 18th century including the Revolutionary War years where it was a gathering place for soldiers and militia men and was patronized by General George Washington, who had a special chair dubbed by the Miller family as "The Washington Chair".
