Connecticut State Museum of Natural History

A self-guided tour will help students “bone up” on their archeology as they view this repository of artifacts representing 11,000 years of Connecticut’s past. The Connecticut Archaeology Center’s permanent exhibit, “Human Nature: Looking Closer at the Relationships between People and the Environment,” explores how the natural history of southern New England has shaped the lives of its inhabitants and environment. Using the storytelling method, the exhibit includes a series of short multi-media presentations by scientists, educators, and historians.
