Public Archaeologist

(Elise) Nadia Kline joined the City of Boston Archaeology Program in 2019 as its grant-funded Digital Archaeologist. Now a staff Archaeologist, she continues working to document some of the city’s most historically and culturally significant collections and make them available to everyone through artifact photography, searchable online databases, virtual exhibits, social media engagement, and public excavations.
