The Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club

What Is LHAC?

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!
