Next Chapter Meeting:  September 15th

Sunday at 4:00 p.m.

Speaker:  Paul Nevin

Topic:   Chapter 28 Excavation of Washington Boro= Susquehannock Village

In 2007, Chapter 28 conducted an excavation of an area just outside the 1600-1625 A.D. Susquehannock village site in Washington Boro (36LA8). What started as an investigation to find the source of a concentration of surface collected artifacts in a field and resulted in finding numerous projectile points, including many triangle points (arrowheads), beads, and pottery shards and other material commonly associated with middens ("trash dumps"). Another surprising find was a curious pattern of post-mold features that await resolution. Paul Nevin will describe what went into the project, from the initial finds to documentation of the site and artifacts. His presentation will include photos of the excavation, artifacts, and features, and numerous artifacts recovered from the excavation will be on display.
