Event Details

The Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club (LHAC) welcomes Dr. Laurie Weinstein, professor emeritus of anthropology at Western Connecticut State University.  Join Dr. Weinstein, who directed WSCU’s archaeological field school at Lover’s Leap State Park in new Milford, as she discusses the significance of the research that she and her students uncover at this very significant Native American site.  From this research and her analyses of land records, she was able to piece together the history of Weantinock, the tribe whose homelands included the important fishing place of the Metichewon, commonly known as Lover’s Leap.  Dr. Weinstein is the General Editor of Native Peoples of the Americas (University of Arizona Press), and the author of many works, including a forthcoming book with Dr. Lucinanne Lavin entitled Between Two Rivers and Two Wars: Native People in 18th Century Western England.
