Susquetonscut Brook 5 Site: Residential Base Camp in an Upland Interior Setting?
Author(s): Ora Elquist
The Susquetonscut Brook 5 Site located in Lebanon, Connecticut consists of Archaic to Woodland Period deposits within an upland interior setting. Such upland interior sites are typically associated with small campsites of a temporary nature. Data recovery excavations at the site in 2015 revealed numerous, large and complex features, such as storage pits, postmolds, and roasting pits, that are more typically associated with larger, more residential campsites located within lower-lying floodplain or coastal settings. The data from the site potentially transforms what is currently known about settlement in upland settings in Connecticut.
