Archaeological Discoveries at Block Island and Nipsachuck
October is CT Archaeology Awareness Month. Visit the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center for a two hour experience. First, archaeologist Kevin McBride will discuss his latest discoveries in Rhode Island, specifically on Block Island and at the Second Battle of Nipsachuck Site, a King Philip’s War Period (1675-6) battlefield in North Smithfield. Next, participants will get a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s archeology laboratory and view artifacts recovered from McBride’s investigations. Following the tour, participants are encouraged to explore the museum at their leisure. This event is recommended for those 13 and older, and is free with museum admission.
