WINDSOR - State archaeologist Nick Bellantoni is a lively speaker who always draws a crowd. On Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. (snow date February 20, 7 p.m.), he will present, Looking Back: the Greatest Hits of the State Archaeologist, at Windsor Historical Society. Bellantoni has worked on many fascinating projects in his 27-year-career in Connecticut, including modern forensic investigations, early Native American sites, colonial farmsteads, historic cemeteries and industrial mills. Learn more about “vampires,” Adolf Hitler, Lieutenant Eugene Bradley (after whom Bradley Airport is named), Samuel Huntington, Venture Smith, Henry Opukaha’ia, Albert Afraid of Hawk, Squire Elisha Pitkin, Gershom Bulkeley, and a host of others as Bellantoni shares how archaeological investigations have contributed to historical knowledge in Connecticut.
