The Litchfield Hills Archaeology Club is sponsoring a trip to the enigmatic Gungywump site in Groton, CT.  William J. Dopirak, Jr., an Associate Professor of Science at Three Rivers Community College will lead the group in exploring this intriguing site.  With many fascinating features, including a double circle of stones, standing stones and multiple stone chambers, Gungywump has been the focus of much archaeological controversy. At least one chamber is constructed so that during the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, sunlight streams in through an opening in the wall and illuminates a “hidden” subchamber. Who do you think built Gungywump?   We will meet at 11:00 am in the IAIS parking lot and caravan down to Groton.  *rain date Sunday, April 29th
