Consulting Archaeology Program (CAP) Finishes up a Productive Field Season!

The Department’s Consulting Archaeology Program (CAP) is just finishing up its 2014 field season!  Actually, it can truly be called four seasons in one (see photos).  CAP’s field work this year included the investigation of more than a dozen Native American sites ranging in age from the Late Archaic period to the Late Woodland period (between 6,000 and 500 years ago).  We also had the opportunity to work at three early historic sites occupied by some of Vermont’s first European settlers.  One of the more incredible sites is a multicomponent Native American site on the Missisquoi River in Swanton, Vermont.  Students and CAP field staff crew experienced the full range of weather there, all within an 8 week period!
