Archaeological Walking Tour of Inwood Hill Park with Bill Parry
Saturday, August 12th, at 1PM

Tour will start promptly at 1 PM. We will email registrants with a meet up location.

This archaeological tour of Inwood Hill Park and vicinity (at the northern tip of Manhattan Island) will visit the last surviving remnants of prehistoric Native American sites in Manhattan. We will get an impression of the ancient environment of Manhattan by seeing forest, springs, and salt marsh. We will next visit a shell midden site, rockshelters, and the former location of a large native village and burial site. We also will see sites of the Revolutionary War, including the site of a hut camp occupied by British soldiers (and the former Dyckman family orchard). We will conclude at the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, where we will see a reconstruction of one of the military huts. Enjoy free admission to the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum at the end of the tour.
Will not be held in event of rain. It is advisable to wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, as there is a bit of walking over rocks, off path.
