WCSU students take part in Archaeology Field School

During this summer’s Archaeology Field School, West Conn students spent four weeks cataloguing artifacts from the 2021 excavation from the Templeton site, and excavating a site known as Deer Run in Warren. This site dates from the late Archaic period, 4000 BC to 2000 BC, through the woodland time period. The pottery found by students date from 700BC to 550 AD.  The found items included multiple fire hearts, a large mortar and pestle, knives, scrapers, cooking stones, fire-cracked rock and calcined bones. Projectile points included Brewerton, Vosberg, Snook Kill, Fox Creek, Greene, Levanna, Lamoka, and Squibnocket. Pottery excavated included untyped cord-wrapped stick stamped Vinette Dentat and Vinette Rocker.  All the items are now housed nearby in Washington, Connecticut, at the Institute for American Indian Studies for future analysis.  Some students involved in this summer dig are now volunteering at IAIS and at the site.
