Digging Vermont Archeology
From 7 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, February 1, One World Conservation Center (OWCC) will host another talk in ‘The Valley We Live In’ series, when Jess Robinson will present ‘An Archaeological History of Vermont,’ an overview of the past, from when the first humans came to this region approximately 13,000 years ago, to the arrival of Europeans and beyond. Robinson will highlight recent discoveries and discuss a large-scale archaeological site excavation conducted for the Bennington Bypass project. He will be happy to answer questions following the presentation. The cost of his lecture is $5.
