Archaeology in the Mid-Hudson Valley
Students in the Bard College Archaeology Program have the opportunity to study both prehistoric and historical
archaeology hands-on, using the rich cultural resources of New York's Mid-Hudson Valley.
Just next to the Bard campus, the islands, embayments, wetlands, and bluffs of the Tivoli Bays appear
to have been occupied by native peoples at least as far back as 9,000 years ago.

||In the middle Hudson Valley this combination of islands, embayments, wetlands, bluffs and upland creeks is unusual. Artifact evidence indicates that the Bays area was attractive to native peoples at least as far back as 9000 years ago.
