Archaeology and the Delaware Indians, a 12,000-Year Odyssey

November 9, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

This heavily illustrated presentation, “Archaeology and the Delaware Indians, a 12,000-Year Odyssey,” examines New Jersey’s rich Native American heritage on Wednesday, November 9, 7pm. It begins with a discussion of the sources archaeologists use to inform their work, including artifacts, archaeological sites, colonial documents, and oral histories. Then, using a series of case studies, the cultural history of the region is examined from the earliest Paleoindian pathfinders over 10,000 years ago through to the Lenape of the historic period. Presented by Richard Veit, Ph.D., is Professor of Anthropology and Interim Dean of the Wayne D. McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Monmouth University.
