JANUARY 7th 2024 – Exploring Lenapehoking: The Land of the Lenape

Time: 2PM, at Solebury Township Historical Society

Join Matt Bielecki for an exploration of the precontact and early colonial Lenape (now referred to as the Delaware) through an examination of their material culture. The Lenape tribe lived in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. Archeological evidence indicates that the Lenape inhabited this region centuries before the Europeans arrived. They hunted and were skilled agriculturalists who preferred to establish villages at the confluence of streams and tributaries.

Matthew Bielecki is an archaeologist, historian, and researcher, with archaeological experience in all stages of fieldwork, laboratory work, and technical report production encompassing the Mid-Atlantic region. Matt graduated with a BA from Pennsylvania State University, and an MA from Monmouth University. He is a member of the Lambda Alpha National Anthropology Honor Society and has presented at regional archaeological conferences. In 2018, he created the Archaeological Technician Training Program at Bucks County Community College, as a method to give students a “hands-on” experience working in the field of archaeology. Additionally, he is the lead archaeologist at Stony Hill Archaeological Research, LLC. Matt’s research interests are varied but include stone tool identification and examination with a focus on microwear analysis.
