Archaeology of Connecticut

Program Info

Description

Experts in the field will join the program each month for a lively discussion of topics ranging from the Ice Age settlement of Connecticut over 12,000 years ago to Cold War-era Nike Missile site ruins. What was it like to live in the Ice Age? When did deer hunting become the focus of the economy? How extensive was the exchange system 3,000 years ago? When did the first permanent villages develop and when were some individuals able to achieve a higher social rank than others? How did the arrival of Europeans affect the Native world? What was life like for English settlers in the 1600s? How did Connecticut's geography define its industrial future? Join us to answer these and many other questions in the months to come!
