Archaeology and the discovery of history at Fort Edward

The New York Times has an interesting article about archaeology at Fort Edward this summer, featuring, you guessed it, David Starbuck.

“Archaeology is its own catalyst,” Professor Starbuck said. “The things we find tell stories and create public interest. We’re generating story lines that I think people will come for in the years ahead.”

Starbuck, of course, was the archaeologist heading up the digs at Mount Independence in the late 1980s and early 1990s. And he gave a name to the historic waterway that made our region so important in his book The Great Warpath.
