Event Details

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).
