Connecticut’s 17th-century past has long been a “lost period” in history. The cultures that populated its shore and riverbanks had complex relationships, and their material and intellectual cultures are only superficially understood. This symposium provides an opportunity to share information and learn about this seminal and somewhat mysterious part of our history.
