When we discuss archaeology in Vermont, it's not about dinosaurs or the homesteads of noted figures who lived here. Instead, we focus on the things that the everyday people who preceded us  left behind as clues about their daily existence.

Vermont State Archaeologist Jess Robinson discusses what we've learned about those who lived on this land from several thousand years ago through the present.

Broadcast live on Monday, July 31, 2017 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
