Location: Mary Tefft White Cultural Center
  • Open to the Public

Archaeologist and anthropologist Alan Leveillee will deliver a lecture titled “Ancient Indian Peoples of New England: An Archaeological Perspective.” Archaeologists have found evidence of Indian peoples spanning 11,000 years occupying what we now call New England. What do human remains and artifacts tell us about these early residents of North America? What is their relation to present-day Native American tribal groups? Learn about what archaeological sites reveal about life in this region several millennia before the arrival of European colonists.
