Archaeology of Connecticut
- Item #: 155
A serious and captivating look at Connecticut Indians
Long before Europeans arrived, Native Americans raised families, hunted, grew corn, celebrated, and worshipped on the lands which now comprise the southernmost state of New England. When Europeans arrived and began their settlements, the two cultures both collided and colluded. In The Archaeology of Connecticut, expert archaeologists look at the lives of Native Americans using the lens of sites, artifacts, current theories, controversies, discoveries, and questions. They also look at the historic and industrial sites of the Europeans.
The Archaeology of Connecticut is a rich discussion of the work that archaeologists are engaged in, what they look for, and the methods they use. It is a celebration of the importance of understanding and preserving the past, of putting together the puzzles left behind by earlier inhabitants, and of the numerous important sites already identified.
