Welcome to the Pocumtuck Heritage Portal! This is a draft of what will become a space for you to explore historical and archaeological stories associated with the Pocumtuck Fort in Deerfield, Massachusetts, US. We have set up this site as a database of elements that we all use to construct historical stories: quotes from historical diaries, knowledge passed on by indigenous people, details discerned from academic archaeological and historical research.
Which items stand out to you? What message do you take away from these many sources? Explore the collections, look at the digital exhibits we've created, and build your own story poster with these items.
