A special Symposium on the role and importance of Cape Cod within the Plimoth Colony has been postponed to Saturday, October 17, 2020, at the Knight Theatre at Barnstable High School in Hyannis. The Symposium is sponsored by the Cape and Island Historical Association (CIHA).

The keynote speaker for the Symposium will be William Martin, author of the historical novel, CAPE COD. The day will then feature oral presentations of essays by a variety of authors (teachers, professors, historians) on various significant events and trends occurring on Cape Cod throughout the 17th century and beyond, as the Plimoth Colony matured.

Topics will include new information and perspectives on subjects such as: the first approach and subsequent landing of the Mayflower in Provincetown; the early settlements at Sandwich, Barnstable, Eastham, and Chatham; Pilgrim explorations of Cape Cod; and early interactions between the native peoples and the English settlers at various locations on Cape Cod.

The essays will be published in advance of the Symposium and will be provided to Symposium participants as part of their Registration Packet. Registrations for the Symposium will begin on January 2, 2020.

For any questions about the Symposium, contact either David Martin (Coordinator of the Symposium) at or 508-527-0460, or Jennifer Williams (President of CIHA) at
