At Sherwood Island, ‘Archaeology at Work’

Artifacts from an ongoing archaeological dig at Sherwood Island State Park will be unveiled rain or shine at a tented, on-site media event Thursday at 4 p.m. , according to the Friends of Sherwood Island State Park

It will also be the subject of a free, public talk titled, “Archaeology at Work: Unearthing the Sherwood Homestead and Other Findings,” scheduled for Thursday, July 18 at 6 p.m. at the park’s Nature Center located at East Beach.

At both events, Ernest Weigand, an archaeology professor at Norwalk Community College, will present artifacts and give an overview of the prehistoric and historic archaeology of southwestern coastal Connecticut, covering the village life of Native Americans and the arrival of European explorers, traders and settlers to the Westport shoreline

Weigand’s team has run tests at the 1780s Sherwood Homestead, as well as additional test wells and work at the park’s Foley Farm location, event planners say.
