New Canaan Library

During the past three years, archaeologists and students unearthed clues about Connecticut’s early colonial past at three archeological sites: a buried house cellar within the original John Mason home lot, a buried farm complex associated with Lt. John Hollister of Glastonbury, and the homestead of Francis Stiles (later owned by the Ellsworth family of Windsor). Dr. Brian Jones, Connecticut’s State Archaeologist, led these excavations and will explain what these recent archaeological explorations in Windsor and Glastonbury tell us about Connecticut’s earliest European settlers, and how modern technology helps rediscover these long-forgotten sites.
