CT STATE ARCHAEOLOGIST BEMOANS DESTRUCTION OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES

Connecticut State Archaeologist Nicholas Bellantoni says about 80 percent of the state's estimated 6,000 identified archaeological sites have been destroyed over time by subdivisions, strip malls and roads. Bellantoni says Connecticut still has unique and diverse archaeological resources. Some date back more than 9,000 years, including fossilized mastodon remains and makeshift tools from early nomadic Paleo-Indian hunting groups.
