About The Event

With the publication of his fourth book on the Ramapough Lenape people of northern New Jersey and southeastern New York, archaeologist Edward J. Lenik celebrates a half century of research and investigation. Ramapough Lenape Heritage focuses on the archaeological evidence of continuous indigenous occupation Lenik and others have uncovered from early 20th century explorations by amateur archaeologists to the careful, scientific excavations and analyses of the late 20th and early 21st century professionals like himself. Much of the material in this book can be found only in cultural resource studies filed in New York and

New Jersey state repositories.

The Stag Run Village site, the Trading Post site, the Sheffield Farm Housensite, the Indian Field Village site, Mountainside Farm and numerous open air campsites, workshops, lithic scatter and quarry sites are discussed. The mysterious Prehistoric Walls site in Sloatsburg; NY is presented in detail with new insights. Halifax or Green Mountain Valley in Mahwah, NJ is examined both archaeologically and historically using census data to identify some of its former occupants.

The 280-page book, printed in color, features 13 tables and 128 illustrations including photographs, maps, field sketches and drawings.
