14th Annual Native American-Archaeology Roundtable
November 9 @ 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.
