Native Americans have inhabited Connecticut since the end of the Ice Age when the glaciers melted. Stone artifacts help us understand the life and culture before the arrival of colonists from Paleolithic times to Woodland period of permanent settlements. The Institute of American Indian Studies has a large collection of Connecticut artifacts collected by archeologists and amateurs. Some of these artifacts will be available at this talk for you to see and discuss.
This program will be presented by Nancy Najarian, Community Outreach Chairperson from the Lapidary and Mineral Club of Central Connecticut.
