Uncovering the latest archaeological findings from New England, New York and the Canadian Maritimes, this work traces the region's changing geography, peoples, and diverse cultures during the nearly 12,000 year span from the first human occupants at the end of the last Ice Age up to the period of European contact. Supplementing the richly illustrated text is a useful listing of related museums, and other organizations in the region, as well as a brief overview of the methods of the archaeologist. The book has had broad appeal for young adults, college students and the general public.

When we began writing this book I was a teacher in the local schools and my son and co-author was an archaeologist on the faculty of Southern Illinois University. From my experience in the classroom, we saw the need for appropriate and accurate resource material on the region's earliest peoples which would be non-technical and thus understandable to readers of any age untrained in the field of archaeology. We decided to collaborate on this book, combining his expertise on the subject and mine as a teacher and non-archaeologist.About the Author:
Esther K. Braun did her undergraduate work at Wellesley College, where she majored in Chemistry. After raising her family, she attended Northeastern University, where she received a Master in Education degree. She is a retired teacher from the Lincoln (MA) Public Schools who specialized in math, science and social studies. The First Peoples of the Northeast was inspired by her experience in the classroom, for which she sought appropriate and accurate resource materials on the topic. The result is this collaboration with her son.
David P. Braun followed undergraduate studies at Harvard University with M.A. and Ph. D. degrees in Anthropology from the University of Michigan.
