Presenter: Duncan Ritchie, PAL Senior Archaeologist

In Spring 2010, extensive (Phase III Data Recovery) archeological surveys were conducted along the former Craven Lane (now Winterberry Way) at Puffer Pond now part of the Assabet River NWR, Sudbury, MA. This site contains evidence of repeated occupation over an estimated 7,500 year span from the Middle Archaic to Late Woodland Periods. Duncan Ritchie, Senior Archaeologist at the Public Archaeology Laboratory, will give a presentation on the findings which added to what is known about Native American settlement patterns, site formation processes and lithic technology in the combined Sudbury/Assabet/Concord river drainage.
