Excavation Findings at Lt. John Hollister Site

Thursday, February 8, 2018
7:30pm – 9:30pm

Norwalk Community College

Dr. Brian Jones, Connecticut State Archaeologist, will discuss his findings during two seasons of excavation at the Lt. John Hollister site in Glastonbury during a presentation at NCC on Thursday, February 8. The session will be held in the Culinary Arts dining room from 7:30-10:00 p.m. This 17th century fortified farmstead is remarkably well-preserved and contains a wealth of information about the early English settlement of Connecticut. In addition to having excellent preservation of organic materials, including fragile fish remains, the site provides new and informative evidence of the relationships made between the English settlers and the Wangunk Indians.
