14th Annual Native American-Archaeology Roundtable

November 9, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 4:15 pm

Recent Discoveries in Connecticut Archaeology: New Light on Old Histories

In the past few years, several significant archaeological sites were discovered, rediscovered, and excavated in Connecticut. They range in age from the deepest history of the Paleo-Indians, dating to over 10,000 years ago, to 18th century Colonial America.  The sites include both Native American and Euro-American settlements, sometimes a concurrent combination of both ethnic groups. The major connection of these sites to one another is that their cultural contents promote archaeological explanations that entail the re-interpretation of traditional American histories.

Come join us for rousing presentations of Early Man (and Women) studies, studies of early Indigenous-European cultural contact, and Revolutionary War encampments that provide new and exciting perspectives of Connecticut and regional histories.

Scheduled speakers: Dr. William Farley (SCSU); Dr. David Leslie (AHS): Dr. Kevin McBride (UCONN); Dr. Cosimo Sgarlata (WCSU); Dr. Zachary Singer (Towson U/IAIS); Dr. Sarah Sportman (AHS)and Katherine Reinhart (PAST, Inc); Elaine Thomas (Mohegan Tribe); Dr. Laurie Weinstein (WCSU).

Organizer & Chair: Dr. Lucianne Lavin (IAIS).

Open to the Public, $10 Conference fee (payable at the door- Cash or Check).
