The Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club

What Is LHAC?

Nominate us as your favorite CT destination! Since launching this spring, Connecticut’s "still revolutionary" initiative has encouraged residents and visitors to experience all of the incredible destinations and attractions that make our state unique, beautiful and full of inspiration.

Now the state is encouraging residents to share the destinations and attractions that they think embody the "still revolutionary" campaign -- a destination that continues to inspire visitors each and every day.

Through July 31, you can nominate your favorite Connecticut tourism destination on the Visit Connecticut Facebook page. To nominate IAIS, visit the site and leave a comment on the status update that has the hashtag #CTFanFavorite. Or, Tweet @IAISMuseum is my #CTFanFavorite.

In early August, Connecticut will announce the 10 most frequently-submitted destinations via Facebook poll, which will be open for two weeks (August 6th – 20th). The final destination will be selected by popular vote and the destination that receives the most votes will be part of the state’s marketing efforts this fall in digital advertising, social media and PR.

Thanks for your support everyone!

Welcome to the Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club page. Founded in 2007 by Dr. Lucianne Lavin, Director of Research & Collections for the Institute for American Indian Studies, LHAC is a hands-on group operating with IAIS and affiliated with the Archaeological Society of Connecticut. It is a great way to join fellow teachers, students, professional and avocational archaeologists and everyone with an interest in discovering more about the past. The club offers a setting for exchange of ideas, lectures covering a wide range of archaeology-related topics and opportunities to participate in actual digs.

The LHAC meets every Sunday during late spring through summer at a local archaeology site where members participate in the annual excavation. During the off-season, club members clean, identify and catalog artifacts from the summer dig. The club also sponsors archaeology lectures and field trips the second Sunday of every month from October through April (with the exception of January and February) at 3:00 pm at IAIS.

The Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club is an experience unlike any other. Take a look around the site...enjoy what you see...and join us!
