Events 2018

Sunday, March 4, 2018, 3:00pm:  Archaeology Talk with Lynn Marie Wieland

“If you like jigsaw puzzles, you’ll love archaeology,” says Lynn Marie Wieland.  “You get all these things out of the ground, put them together and find out what people did, when they lived, when they left.  It’s fun to put the pieces together.”


 Lynn Marie Wieland, Lithic Archaeologist

Sunday, March 4, 3:00pm, Ruth Keeler Memorial Library, 276 Titicus Road, North Salem, NY

By 10,000 years ago the glaciers had receded, and people were beginning to move into our area. They occupied this land for thousands of years, successfully adapting to the changing weather and environment by developing new technology and social changes.  They faced and met every challenge except one:  Contact.

Best known locally for her six-year dig at Ridgefield’s Richardson Park (less than a mile from North Salem), Wieland has also worked at Lake Kitchawan and Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, and teaches archaeology in Adult Education in Ridgefield.  She specializes in southern New England prehistory with emphasis on the Native Americans of our area and their manufacture of stone tools.
