About the Project

The Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center, funded by the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program, is identifying and preserving battlefields and historical sites associated with the Pequot War. The primary goal of this project is the identification of battlefield sites and obtaining physical evidence of these through non-invasive archaeological investigations. Partnering with the Office of the Connecticut State Archaeologist, the Connecticut State Historian and many local historical societies, research centers and museums from Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York, the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center has undertaken a comprehensive study to research all aspects of the Pequot War.
