Antiquities of the State of New York was first published by the Smithsonian as one of series of "Contributions to Knowledge" in 1851.

Readers can (with great effort) occasionally find rare original copies that range in price from $150 to $300 per copy. Now with our exact softcover replica, you can get this 360 page reprint of the original in its entirety.

Who were these people and what fearsome enemy caused them to build these hundreds of protective enclosures as the last bastion of defense, which obviously failed to accomplish its desired objective?
