The Shays' Settlement Project: A Story of Revolt and Archaeology
Sunday 25 October 2015, 02:00pm
Hits : 271

The Library and the Arlington Historical Society are pleased to co-sponsor a free talk by Steve Butz on the Shays’ Settlement Project in Sandgate, Vermont. The Shays’ Settlement Project is the first formal study of the ruins of a fortified 18th century settlement located in the mountains of Southern Vermont.  The settlement was founded by Captain Daniel Shays and his fellow refugees after they fled from Massachusetts following the uprising he led in 1787.  Incredibly, this piece of lost American history lay hidden and untouched for over 200 years.  The archaeological study began in April of 2013, and is still ongoing. The Shays’ Settlement Project is being led by Steve Butz, an educator, writer and archaeologist who lives along the Vermont/New York border.
