Vermont Archaeology Month

September is Vermont Archaeology Month: Learn and Explore 13,000 Years of Vermont History

Every September, the Division for Historic Preservation along with the Agency of Transportation hosts a month-long celebration of Vermont archaeology and history. Vermont Archaeology Month 2014 is a time to discover and explore new and compelling research and artifacts that delve into Vermont’s 13,000 years of history. Novices and history buffs alike can learn about Vermont’s Precontact and historic past, its Native communities and their traditions, how the environment and the natural world shaped and directed past people’s lives, and at more than 40 interactive and educational events statewide. Organized walks and talks, hands-on explorations, presentations, and panels are offered nearly every day throughout September.
