Alyssa Loorya's TED Talk on Urban Archeology in New York City

Urban archeologist Alyssa Loorya is President and Principal Investigator of Chrysalis Archaeology, an archeologic consultancy company which helps municipal agencies, managing firms and construction crews navigate the tough national, state and local cultural and historic regulatory requirements when excavating land in an Urban environment. During a recent TEDx New York conference, Alyssa talks about the fascinating items found while digging under the Financial District on Fulton Street, as well as some other Urban Archeological finds and how they help tell a story about our past.
