Recent Archaeological, Geospatial, and Historical Insights into Mount Independence
Saturday, September 16, at 2:00 pm
On Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 2:00 pm., staff from the University of Vermont Consulting Archaeology Program will be presenting a program on new archaeological, geospatial, mapping, and historical research about Mount Independence at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, VT. The program is part of September’s Vermont Archaeology Month.
The talk will concentrate on happenings of 240 years ago when the Americans attempted to take back Mount Independence from the British in the fall of 1777. Much of this effort took place on or near the southern defenses. The research is part of the site’s grant from the American Battlefield Protection Program (National Park Service).
