Event Details

For thousands of years, the Native inhabitants of the Eastern Woodlands were able to make dugout canoes using natural materials found in their environment. Travel back in time with IAIS staff at Warren Town Beach on Lake Waramaug. Learn about the traditional techniques required to make a dugout canoe as you dip your paddles into the past! While you are at the Lake, check out the Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club, who will be excavating nearby on North Shore Road. Get your hands dirty as you dig into the science behind excavations and understand the processes archaeologists use to learn about people of the past!
