At the Gateway to Vermont: Recent Investigations at the Galick Site, West Haven, VT
In 2016, the South Champlain Historical Ecology Project (SCHEP) initiated investigations at the Galick Site as part of a regional study focusing on long-term human-environment interaction within the South Lake Champlain area. Situated at the confluence of long-distance trade routes and within an area of remarkable ecological diversity, the Galick Site constitutes a key setting for examining historical ecology at the southern end of Lake Champlain. To date, SCHEP has conducted two field seasons at the Galick Site, analyzed more than 1,000 artifacts collected by the site’s previous landowner, and completed a range of spatial and technical analyses. These investigations have revealed the Galick Site to be a large, multicomponent campsite and settlement used extensively from the Late Paleoindian period up to the Historical era, with particularly heavy usage during the Middle to Late Woodland interval. These investigations also provide initial confirmation for earlier suppositions that the Galick Site served as an important central place for a wide range of economic and social activities occurring within the South Lake Champlain area.
