Dr. Brian Jones, state archaeologist, will discuss “Connecticut’s Earliest European Settlers: Finds from Glastonbury and Windsor.”
The presentation will focus on newly unearthed clues about Connecticut’s early Colonial past that archaeologists and public field school participants discovered at three archaeological digs last summer.
The first site appears to be a Native American satellite camp associated with the 1633 Windsor Trading Post established by men from Plymouth.
The second was undertaken after the unexpected discovery of a buried house cellar within the original John Mason home lot within the Pequot War-era Windsor Palisade.
The third site is a large buried farm complex associated with Lt. John Hollister of Glastonbury, dating between 1650 and 1721.
