Crown Point Road Is Part of N.H. Archaeology Series

Concord (ap) — The New Hampshire Archaeological Society is offering some talks about the Shakers, the Manchester mills, Strawbery Banke and other topics this month. The theme for April is “Brush Up on Archaeology,” and focuses on the many disciplines involved in being an archaeologist.

Other topics include the history of Crown Point Road, a military supply route from Charlestown, N.H., through Vermont; a demonstration dig outside of the Division of Historical Resources in Concord; and Paleo-Indian culture in New Hampshire. “Uncovering artifacts is only part of archaeology. The real find is discovering more about how people lived their lives, whether in the past century or a hundred thousand years ago,” said Richard Boisvert, New Hampshire state archaeologist.
