"Archaeology at Roundtop" - Monday, Nov. 17 at SRAC

ARCHAEOLOGY MEETING -The Susquehanna River Archaeology Center SRAC), 345 Broad St.Waverly, NY , is the location for a combined meeting of the Bradford County Andastes Chapter of Pennsylvania Archaeology, SRAC and the Triple Cities Chapter of New York Archaeology. The meeting is Monday, Nov. 17 from 7 to 8 p.m(doors open at 6:30pm.) The title of the program is "Archaeology at Roundtop", presented by archaeologist Dan Caister, president of the Triple Cities Chapter.

The Round Top Site is located in Endicott NY and it's silhouette reminds me of our own Spanish Hill.

The program is an overview of archaeology, the evidence it uses, and the questions it tries to answer. Caister uses the Round Top Site, as a case study of how archaeologists work. Roundtop, a site that was excavated 40 years ago, continues to reveal new evidence that furthers our understanding of the late prehistory of the Northeastern United States.

Exhibit Hall will be open and everyone that attends the presentation can view it until the presentation begins! (The Exhibit Hall will be closed during presentations)

There will be a great many artifact collections on display. The public is welcome and there is no admission charge.

For information call Ted Keir at 570-888-2718.
