Mansion Inn is a well-known Native American cremation burial site. Concord native and archaeologist, Dena Dincauze, took on the formidable task of studying the artifacts recovered from a site that was dug in a non-scientific way by avocational archaeologists and local residents. Dincauze studied the stone tools as part of her dissertation research at Harvard University. This seminal work began her remarkable career as a leader in New England Archaeology.
