Archaeological Associates of Greenwich hosts lecture at the Bruce

“Connecticut’s Earliest European Settlers: Recent Finds from Glastonbury and Windsor” will be the topic of Connecticut’s State Archaeologist Dr. Brian Jones on Sunday, June 12, at 2 p.m., at the Bruce Museum, One Museum Drive, Greenwich.

Programs are free to AAG, Bruce Museum members and students with an ID. Non-member admission is $15.

State Archaeologist Jones has led these excavations that date between AD 1650 and AD 1721. He will explain how they bring to light Connecticut’s Colonial past and its earliest European settlers. Modern radar-based surveys have helped find these long forgotten sites.

Dr. Jones special interest is in Northeast Native American archaeology.  After receiving his BS from Oberlin College, he lived and traveled in Southeast Asia, then studied European prehistory in Cologne and returned to the U.S. in 1992 where he completed his PhD at UConn.   Before becoming the State Archaeologist, he served as Senior Archaeologist with Archaeological and Historical Service in Storrs CT. He has taught in the Anthropology Department at UCONN.  He was appointed CT state archaeologist two years ago, following Nick Bellantoni, one of the AAG’s popular speakers.
