Overview

American Archaeology Uncovers the Earliest English Colonies by Lois Miner Huey

In Cities and Towns across the United States and Canada, historical archaeologists dig for clues about what happened in North America after Europeans arrived.

The people who settled here did not usually leave behind documents such as diaries, letters, maps, and land deeds. They did leave garbage-food bones, tools, broken dishes, buttons, bottles, toys, and gun parts. Archaeologists dig through time as they carefully scrape away soil, layer by layer, to uncover objects used by people long ago. By examing. These artifacts, we are able to discover the stories of Dutch, English, African, Spanish-even Viking-settlers in North America.
