Free Public Presentation @ Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge Heaquarters and Visitor's Center
Apr 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join Vermont State Archaeologist for a free presentation entitled: New Insights and Interpretations into the Archaeological History of the Lower Missisquoi Region. 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 enabled us to see new patterns in Native Lifeways and environmental changes that may have had an effect on them.
