New history/archaeological program, Sept. 16

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).

Admission is $5.00 for adults and free for Coalition members and children under 15, and includes the museum and all the trails. Call 802-948-2000 for more information.
