21st Annual Highlands Archaeological Conference

The 21st Annual Highlands Archaeological Conference held on Saturday, October 27, 2007 at the Lautenburg Visitor Center, Sterling Forest State Park began with a preview tour led by Ranger Doc Bayne of the “Iron Trail” that visited the ruins of the various Sterling Iron Works that operated from about 1794 through 1923.

“The Great Algonkian Flint Mines at Coxsackie, NY, A photographic visit to one of the most important Indian localities within New York State” by IOCCNYSA member, Eric X. Dratch led off the afternoon’s formal session. Since Eric was called away on business, Ray Decker assisted by Clif Patrick presented Eric’s paper.

IOCCNYSA chapter President, Kevin Storms closed the conference with his excellent: “Drawing on the Past.”
