Templeton Site: 10,000 year old secrets revealed
LHAC Lecture Series presents "The Templeton Site: 10,000 year old secrets revealed"
Saturday, March 13th 3:00 pm
The Templeton Site, 6LF21, located in Washington Depot was excavated by IAIS (formerly the American Indian Archaeology Institute) more than 30 years ago. At the time it was the oldest dated human camp site in New England (10,190 years ago). This was an undisturbed, deeply buried, single occupation camp with evidence of woodworking, hunting, hide working, bone working, food preparation, and tool manufacturing. This one site destroyed the stereotype of Paleo-Indian camp placement, environment, lithic procurement strategies and selection, and long term site preservation. Presented by Dr. Roger Moeller, former Director of Research of IAIS and author of “6LF21: A Paleo-Indian Site in Western Connecticut (available for purchase in our gift shop).
