Come to a free presentation from Jess Robinson, Vermont State Archaeologist, who will be presenting a talk about the archaeology of the Missisquoi area.

Recent work by Northeast Archaeology Research Center and the University of Vermont Consulting Archaeology Program in and near to the Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge (MNWR) has revealed new sites and exciting details related to the precontact Native American lifeways along the lower Missisquoi.  Work by the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation and the staff at the MNWR to synthesize new and old archaeological data in preparation for a National Register district nomination has also enabled us to see new patterns in Native Lifeways and environmental changes that may have had an effect on them.  Jess will briefly discuss these topics and others during his presentation.  A Q and A will follow.

Program starts at 6 pm at the Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge Visitor’s Center.
