|The Brian D. Jones site is along the "Farmington River of the Paleoindian Lifeways", approximately 12,500 years old. It was located five feet below the riverbank along the Farmington River in Avon. More than 15,000 artifacts were recovered, including specialized tools, tool-making debris, burned animal and plant remains, as well as numerous fire pits, post features, remnants of past campsites, and living spaces. This discovery presents an important opportunity for archaeologists to better understand the daily lives of the first people to inhabit Connecticut and predict the locations of undiscovered archaeological sites from this early time period.|
