Some of the sites include the Sanford Archaeological District, a Native American farming village that thrived from 1300 to the 1600’s. The tour will also include the mounds at Myrick Park, which are at least 1,000 years old. Tour is led by Wendy Holtz-Leith, Senior Research Archaeologist from MVAC.
