Amazing Tales features the ‘Ridgefield Skeletons’

Thursday, October 13 @ 7:00 am | Virtual

The podcast Amazing Tales from Off and On Connecticut’s Beaten Path features local stories about people, places and events from throughout the state. The September 14th edition featured Keith Jones, founding president of the Ridgefield Historical Society, discussing Benedict Arnold and the Battle of Ridgefield.

On October 13, Amazing Tales will release their episode on “The Ridgefield Skeletons.”

In this episode, CT State Archeologist Emeritus Nick Bellantoni provides the latest update on the effort to identify the skeletal remains of four persons found in a mass grave in a dirt basement of a historic home in Ridgefield. He discusses how he and his expert support team have arrived at an initial working hypothesis that the four skeletons were likely Patriot soldiers who died in the 1777 Battle of Ridgefield, although that hypothesis remains to be confirmed. The amazing techniques, technology and insights that surround this incredible archeological effort will be shared and explained.

The episode will be available on Thursday, October 13, at Amazing Tales from Off and On Connecticut’s Beaten Path.
