Ramapough Lenape Heritage: Archaeology, History & Culture: 10,500 B.C. to the Present
By Edward J Lenik
“Ramapough Lenape Heritage focuses on the archaeological evidence of continuous indigenous occupation Lenik and others have uncovered from early 20th century explorations by amateur archaeologists to the careful, scientific excavations and analyses of the late 20th and early 21st century professionals like himself. Much of the material in this book can be found only in cultural resource studies filed in New York and New Jersey state repositories.”
