Fort Ticonderoga will present its Fourth Annual “Material Matters: It’s in the Details” Seminar the weekend of January 25 & 26, 2014. The weekend event focuses on the material culture of the 18th century and is intended for people with an interest in learning more about objects of the 18th century and what they can tell us about history. “Material Matters” is open to the general public by pre-registration. The cost is $120 if registering before December 20th; $145 after that date (members of the Friends of Fort Ticonderoga receive a discount, as do students and young museum professionals). Registration forms can be downloaded from the Fort’s website at www.fort-ticonderoga.org  under the “Explore and Learn” tab by selecting “Life Long Learning” on the drop down menu and then clicking on “Material Matters: It’s in the Details.” A printed copy is also available upon request by contacting Rich Strum, Director of Education, at (518) 585-6370.
