Western Connecticut investigated a Revolutionary War campsite within the town of Redding, Connecticut.  This 1778 winter campsite is the only remaining untouched and well-preserved camp site in the country.  We mapped and recording this site, as well as making a determination about its level of archaeological integrity. Students learned mapping, archaeological reconnaissance, subsurface testing and excavation.

The summer field school is a part of the Cultural Resource management program at WestConn where students receive first-hand experience in historical preservation.  

Our field school ran five weeks from May 29th until June 29th.  Students worked 8am-4pm four days a week and received 6 credits.  Laurie Weinstein and Bethany Morrison co-led this class.
