Magdalen Island

Hudson River Island

blank dot

Professionally surveyed by archaeologists in 1939, Magdalen--also called Goat Island--has proved to be a productive site. Hundreds of projectile points and ceramic pieces from the island are stored in the State Museum in Albany, and archaeologists found human bones at a burial site from the early Woodland period at the back of the rock shelter, a 45-foot-long overhang of graywacke, a local sandstone.
