5th Annual Cemetery “Cemener”: Suspected Indian Burial Vaults in Hunterdon County
Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
The Hunterdon 300th and the Hunterdon County Historical Society are partnering together for our 5th Annual Cemetery Cemener and are proud to present this grave topic!
Our morning speaker is Dr. Gregory C. Herman. Dr. Herman earned his BS in geology from Ohio University in 1982. After receiving a MS in structural geology from the Univ. of Connecticut in 1984, he joined the NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) in the water quality management program, regulating industrial facilities having discharge of hazardous wastes to groundwater. He transferred to the NJ Geological Survey (NJGS) in 1985 to map bedrock geology in NJ. In 1997 he received his PhD in Geology from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. Having retired from the NJGS after 32 years, Greg now teaches Earth Science at local colleges and a university while consulting on Earth science projects. He also researches impact tectonics and provides Earth-science themes for Google Earth.
Recently Greg has been researching native peoples in Hunterdon County, his fieldwork has led to the possible rediscovery of ancient stone burial mounds located atop the Cushetunk Mountains, the basis of his talk. The discovery awaits confirmation through professional archeological work.
