State archaeologist digs up history
How often do you get to dig up bones from a grave?

Dr. Nicholas Bellantoni gets to whenever he is needed. He has been the Conn. State Archaeologist for over 20 years.

Bellantoni came to Sacred Heart University on Monday, Apr. 14 to discuss his experience with digging up the grave of Hawaiian, Henry Opukaha'ia.

"This is just another piece of Connecticut and U.S. history that was lost and then rediscovered," said Dr. Charlotte Gradie, history professor.
