Today In History

New Haven, Connecticut.
College St. 
Between George and Crown,

These photos were provided by Robert Greenberg whose diligence on the documentation of this event is proven in these photographs. 

The event is the unearthing of early settler life in New Haven. Evidence suggests that the first settlers made landfall just yards from here. 

More unearthed evidence has been advancing daily. 

A dig site on the block of College between George and Crown Street is being developed.  Will the excavators ruin the nearly 400 years of history buried underneath? Or will they take the time to sift through the dirt, in certain portions, to carefully extract our past?  We have only one chance to find out.

Here are some articles about this in the news.
