Summary

Regional studies of eastern Connecticut suggest seasonal movements between valley lowlands and uplands along the Connecticut River Valley, and year-round occupation of the Northeastern Highlands by mobile groups during the Archaic. The Public Archaeology Laboratory recently excavated a complex of sites in the Susquetonscut Brook drainage, a minor tributary located in a transitional zone between river valley lowlands and highlands. This site complex contains a wide range of occupation types, and their characteristics have produced new insights and questions regarding the timing, nature, and variability of broader regional settlement patterns.
