In New York State Museum Bulletin 509, Before Albany, An Archaeology of Native-Dutch Relations in the Capital Region, 1600-1664 , author Dr. James W. Bradley explores the interaction between Native Americans and the Dutch settlers living in the Beverwijck settlement, now present-day Albany. He discusses the mutual respect between the two groups and how, despite Albany s remote location and some conflicts, the liaison of Native people and the Dutch led to the settlement of the Capital Region. This volume appeals to a broad spectrum of individuals interested in the human and natural history of the area and its influence on the development of New York State s capital city.
