Repair work on a century-old bridge in Norwalk has dug up something even older: the remains of a 17th-century Native American trading fort.
The artifacts include trade goods like pottery and glass beads. There’s even evidence of ancient arrowheads, some thought to date back thousands of years.
Another key finding? Trash. Particularly, all manner of leftover food.
Sarah Sportman, one of the archeologists at the site, said the trash included old animal bones and lots of plant remains, including raspberries and tiny pieces of charred corn.
