Geology, Landscape, and the Iroquois Homeland with Dr. Chuck Ver Straeten, Geologist at NYS Museum

It influenced their territorial boundaries, defenses,
settlement patterns, trail systems, agriculture, and
key natural resources. Chuck Ver Straeten is Curator of
Sedimentary Rocks at the New York State Museum. He
investigates the Devonian Period, c. 400 million years ago.
