Summary:
Join Brian Jones, State Archeologist, as he digs into Connecticut's deep past and explores the region from Ice Age to Contact. Learn how Native Americans came to be here, and how they thrive!
Detailed Description:

Ninety-seven percent of the history of Connecticut occurred prior to the arrival of Europeans (Contact).  Yet, this period is mostly overlooked.  How did man come to colonize the region after the Ice Age?  How did these pioneers adapt to the continuing changing climate and the land around them?  How did they manage to develop a highly sophisticated society, network of trade, and feed growing populations?   All this was done without horses, metal or the wheel!  Come join us and learn about the time before European colonization, and how it relates to the present.
