The Roxbury Land Trust will present a lecture, “Our Hidden Landscape: Stone Cultural Features & Ceremonial Landscapes,” Sunday at 3 p.m. at Washington Montessori School.
A hike in the woods often reveals a variety of stone cultural features to the experienced archaeologist and historian.
Many of these are the remains of abandoned farmsteads and industrial mill sites.
Others, however, represent Native American ceremonial sites.
Lavin will provide an overview of the various kinds of European-American and indigenous stone structures found throughout Connecticut.
