Ridgefield Historical Society hosting webinar about Revolutionary War-era skeletons

The Ridgefield Historical Society is hosting a webinar about the Revolutionary War-era skeletons unearthed recently.  Nick Bellantoni, Emeritus Connecticut State Archeologist, discuss the history, discovery, and excavation of the burials found last December.  He will also provide an update on the forensic analysis currently underway.  The event is titled Living Their Enemies, Dying Their Guests: Four Revolutionary Soldier Burials.  The Zoom event will be held December 8th from 7pm to 8pm.  Construction activities working to lower the dirt grade under a house basement dating to 1790 uncovered human skeletal remains of young, robust adult males, all of which were hastily buried together in a common shallow grave where the bodies are commingled with overlapping arms and legs. The discovered burials are located in the area of the April 1777 Battle of Ridgefield.
