Old Artifacts, New Ideas: The Current Interpretation of the Binette Site Rock Shelter will be presented at 3pm by David H. Thompson, a professional archaeologist with his M.A. in anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania. David is the retired President of the Greater New Haven Archaeological Society and has directed numerous archaeological excavations in Connecticut, including several in Litchfield County when he was affiliated with the Gunnery in Washington. He has participated in excavations throughout the United States and Mexico.
The Binette site is a rock overhang in Naugatuck that was occupied for over 10,000 years, from Paleo-Indian times to the Colonial period. David will focus on its Late Archaic Laurention (Vosburg) component to discuss how tool analysis can provide information on human activities at Binette.
