RESCHEDULED Early Watercraft in the Northeast at Thacher Nature Center

Saturday, February 23, 2019 02:00 PM

**This event, originally scheduled for January 20th has been moved to February 23rd due to snow**

Seafaring and travel on inland waterways likely played key roles in the earliest settlement and dispersal of human groups throughout the Western Hemisphere, and provided an important link between Native American groups in New York and surrounding areas. Archaeologist Dr. Daria Merwin will discuss evidence of early watercraft in the Northeast, and the implications of water-borne technology for subsistence, settlement, and exchange. Call 518-872-0800 for more information.
