Vermont Archaeology

a dig site at Chimney Point State Historic Site 

Vermont has a remarkably rich and diverse archaeological heritage that spans almost 13,000 years of human history.

Sites range from Native American campsites used by Paleo-Indians (the earliest Vermonters) and 12th century Native American farming sites (the earliest known in northern New England), to Revolutionary War shipwrecks and 19th century farmsteads and industrial sites.

Vermont Archaeology Heritage Center
Artifacts and other cultural materials recovered from archaeological sites tell the untold stories about 13,000 years of Vermont history, most of it unwritten.  Students, scholars, and volunteers are now better able to research Vermont history by handling and examining artifacts of all ages - - ancient and more modern - - at the Vermont Archaeology Center . The Center sponsors a range of educational programs and projects, both at the Center and around the state.


Connect with Vermont’s past throughout September.
