Bacon Pond Site


The Bacon Pond site is a kettle hole pond dating from the last glaciations of the region. The site was chosen for test excavations due to the presence of this feature. Excavators were also hopeful of reconstructing the changes in the environment over the past 12,000 years through the analysis of pollen cores. Excavations took place at the site between July 7 - July 20,1977, and from June 28 - August 3, 1978. Numerous shovel test pits and excavation squares were investigated and documented at this site.

Further background information and details of the investigation of this site can be found under Bacon Pond Site Documents in the Bacon Pond Site Catalog Guide.
