12,000 Years Ago in the Granite State
Franklin Pierce University Anthropology professor Robert Goodby will speak about one of the most remarkably intact archeological sites in NH
More than 12,000 years ago, small groups of Paleoindians endured frigid winters on the edge of a small river in what would become Keene, New Hampshire.
In 2009, an archaeological survey for the new Keene Middle School discovered the remains of their stay and brought to light one of the oldest Native American sites in New England.
Franklin Pierce University Anthropology professor Robert Goodby will speak about the remarkably intact archeological site, which produced evidence of four separate dwellings containing over 200 stone tools and fragments of burned animal bone.
This program is made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities (nhhumanities.org), and through the support of the Etna Ladies Aid Society.
Please Note: This event is being held at Trumbull Hall (195 Etna Road, connected to the Etna First Baptist Church, just down the street from the library).
