HER­ITAGE HUNTERS: Her­itage Hunters of Saratoga County will meet on Satur­day, Novem­ber 16th, at 1 pm at the Town of Saratoga Town Hall, cor­ner of Rt. 4 and Rt. 29 in Schuylervi­lle. Amy Bracewell, Saratoga Bat­tle­field Park Su­per­in­ten­dent, will dis­cuss a new ar­chae­o­log­i­cal dig led by William Gris­wold, an ar­chae­ol­o­gist with the Na­tional Park Ser­vice. It fo­cused on a short bat­tle in 1777 that changed the course of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War when 12,000 Amer­i­can sol­diers sur­prised 1700 hun­gry Bri­tish and Ger­man men. The dig used aerial sur­vey, metal de­tect­ing, dig­ging, and ground pen­e­trat­ing radar to help de­ter­mine where in the old wheat field the dif­fer­ent troops fought. Pub­lic is wel­come. For in­for­ma­tion call Ginny at 518-885-9309.
