In October I did something I regularly do: I submitted news from Curtin Archaeological to the New York Archaeological Council (NYAC) Newsletter. More recently, I was responding to an email from colleague Linda Stone, and noticed that she mentioned the recent newsletter. Where is my NYAC Newsletter? I wondered.
The “Missing 2000 Years” refers to the period 8,000-10,000 years before present (BP). The former New York State Archaeologist Robert E. Funk (2004:130) used this concept to refer to the poorly known Early Archaic period.
