Tools and other archaeological digs in Williston

The Williston Historical Society recently acquired some stone tools gifted to WHS by the Lynwood Osborne estate. Lynwood’s father discovered the tools years ago on the Talcott farm, near where the Williston golf course is now located. The Vermont State Archaeologist, Jess Robinson, has researched them and will speak about the tools and other archaeological digs in Williston at the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library on January 27, 2018 at 10:30 AM sponsored by the Williston Historical Society.
Jess is originally from Burlington and now lives in Richmond with his wife and son. He has worked in Vermont as an archeologist in both regulatory and academic settings for over 15 years. Retired StateArchaeologist Giovanna Peebles says of Jess, “He is passionate about studying the past and sharingstories with all interested Vermonters…”
