 Narragansett - South Kingstown  See map

On Sunday, February 17 the importance of an ancient Narragansett settlement will be explored in a presentation by Jay Waller, lead archaeologist for the Public Archaeology Laboratory, Inc.  This village, known as  RI 110, was inhabited between 1300 and 1500 AD and is located at the head of Point Judith Pond in Narragansett.  Until this site was discovered, archaeologists believed there were no Native American villages and no intensive cultivation of corn in New England.  RI 110 may also be the area where the Narragansett Indian oral history says they were grown from the earth.  The program is being held because of the increasing interest in the site and demand for more information.  It is sponsored by the Narragansett Historical Society and will be presented from 1 to 3 PM at the URI Bay Campus Coastal Institute auditorium on South Ferry Road.  To reach the parking lot, turn left on Tarzwell Road and take a quick right into the lot.  For information, call 783-3951.
