Like the shadows in the stream

Like the shadows in the stream
Like the evanescent gleam
Of the twilight's failing blaze
Like the fleeting years and days.

From Thomas L. Doughton's
"Like the shadows in the stream"
Local Historians, The Discourse of Disappearance and
Nipmuc Indians of Central Massachusetts

This is the basic missing context of New England archeology. Knowing that Indians have always lived here, makes it easier to understand structures in the woods that seem fresh.
