Heading into Boston Public Library to give a lecture on Native American Sacred Geography. I'm honored to speak on a topic I hold dear. Many Sacred sites in New England are bulldozed. This is allowed because of the attitudes of Eurocentric academics and government officials who continue to not see the land as Sacred. Native Americans had, and continue to have, ceremonial sites made from stone.

Great time at Littleton high School career day. Lots of familiar faces. A good discussion on what is involved with earning an anthropology degree. Of course I had ground stone Native American tools for hands-on fun.

New evidence of human remains in a prehistoric cave shows that our species started its migration out of Africa at least 50,000 years earlier than when was previously believed to be true. http://ow.ly/Vdau30i19Yq

It was a pleasure to lead a great group into the past uses of Great Hill. Thanks to Friends of Pine Hawk and The Discovery Museum for keeping the archaeological past alive in Acton!

We had an amazing Archaeology Hike in the Great Hill Conservation Land this weekend! Thank you to local archaeologist Kimberley Connors, who lead a wonderful 2-mile, 2.5-hour hike highlighting the archaeological remains of our recent farming past and the longer Native American occupation that lasted thousands of years. We learned a lot about how humans were able to survive and thrive in this rich environment, and enjoyed the gorgeous landscape.

I was fortunate enough to check out a local stone tool collection at the Boxborough Historical Society Museum. The Otis Price collection consists of 91 projectile points and ground tools. It is remarkable as it covers over 7000 years of local and exotic "arrowhead" types from the Middle Archaic through the late Woodland period. All from one spot. Even though it was not excavated, its shows a long progression of human occupation in Boxborough. Many thanks to Alan Rohwer for the invitation and the photo
