Archaeology

The Old Stone House Museum is an archaeological site, investigations here offer excellent educational opportunities to learn more about the life and times of this  late 18th,  early 19th century Vermont Hill Village.  Students, teachers, Time Travelers  and other interested community members have assisted in “digs” under the direction of professional archaeologists.
During the summer of 2014 the historical archaeologist, Andrew Beaupre, introduced Time Traveler campers to theory and practice for their own investigation of an interesting and unknown feature on Museum grounds.  Results suggested a small barn or animal shed with no evident human habitation.  The following booklet was composed by Mr. Beaupre for these young archaeologists.

This week long project was developed and supported by
Vermont Humanities Council.
