Explore the archaeology of folklore with Salem State University history professor Emerson “Tad” Baker at 7 p.m. in Old Town Hall, located at 32 Derby Square in Salem.

The event is hosted by The Witch House as part of its “Lessons of 1692 Education Series.” For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
