Virtual Author Talk- Archaeology and the Delaware Indians, a 12,000 year odyssey
Tuesday, November 28
12pm to 1pm, Zoom Event
Tune in virtually to learn about the history of New Jersey, as the first indigenous peoples settled in the Delaware Valley. The archaeological remains from New Jersey’s early Native American inhabitants can provide material evidence about where they lived, the tools they made, the dwellings they inhabited, what they ate, their physical appearance, and, to some extent, their cultural practices and religious beliefs. However, it is an imperfect record. Please join us as Dr. Richard Veit discusses the archeological record and what we can glean from New Jersey’s first residents. To join, please click here
