VELCO-sponsored Archaeology on the NRP Route
From 2005 to 2007, VELCO funded a series of archaeological studies in advance of construction of the Northwest Reliability Project. The studies were undertaken by the University of Vermont Consulting Archaeology Program and the Archaeological Services at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
VELCO has published a handbook describing the studies that is aimed at students and adults interested in the history of Native American people in the Champlain Basin before the arrival of Europeans. The handbook describes some of the 113 pre-contact Native American archaeological sites researched on the NRP corridor.
