Description: Who were the Pilgrims? Far from the somberly clad, stern, and righteous figures children learn about in school, many of the settlers of Plymouth actually dressed in bright colors, drank heavily, and often got into trouble. Beginning with the first Thanksgiving, this impressive work of historical archaeology offers an often startling portrait of the Pilgrims that includes aspects of their legal system, folk beliefs, family life, women's roles and gender issues, eating habits, alcohol use, sexual misconduct, domestic violence, and violent crimes.

A surprising new look at America's founding fathers and mothers, "The Times of their Lives" presents a realistic, factual account of the Plymouth colony based on contemporary archaeology, cultural research, and living history. Taking little known trial transcripts, personal accounts, wills, and probate records, as well as physical artifacts such as shards and spoons unearthed from old foundations, James and Patricia Deetz reveal what life in seventeenth-century Plymouth was really like. In the process they blow the dust off the dull, wooden figures of tradition and show the Plymouth colonists as vibrant people who lived out complex and colorful lives in a world profoundly different from our own.
