White Memorial Conservation Center, Litchfield CT

"Stone Cultural Features and Ceremonial Landscapes"
Presented by Lucianne Lavin, Ph.D, Institute for American Indian Studies, Washington, Connecticut
     The subject is part of Dr. Lavin’s new and ongoing research. The idea of Native American built stone features and ceremonial landscapes is fairly new to Northeastern archaeologists in general, who traditionally thought all were the result of Euro-American farm clearing. Some of it is, of course, but some of it is not. The latter is often associated with celestial movements that may reflect the timing of annual ceremonies/festivals. White Memorial is a huge land trust, and these ritual sites are often found on upland preserves for the very reason that the land has been preserved from industrialization and housing projects. Enjoy a delicious luncheon before her presentation.

Some great points here. It's often disturbing knowing how many people sign things they don't understand the implications of. I like this theme just fine. It feels very spacious. Thanks for sharing
Thanks for such an open behind-the-scenes look at not just the process, I feel best about it. This blog is so nice to me. I will continue to come here again and again.
