Spanish Hill - The Sites, by Deb Twigg April 5th

There's ALWAYS Something Going On At SRAC!

Spanish Hill - The Sites
Tue, April 5, 6:30pm – 7:30pm
SRAC - 345 Broad STreet Waverly, NY (map)

SRAC's Deb Twigg will present a never before seen presentation on the three archaeological sites found at Spanish Hill - and what was found there. Loaded with never before seen images and illustrations from local archaeologist Ellsworth Cowles.

The mystery of Spanish Hill has continued in the Valley for every generation since the white men have arrived here. After researching the site for several years Deb Twigg created a website, in 2003 and was published on the topic in Pennsylvania Archaeologist journal in 2005. Once a year, Twigg continues to present the information that she has gathered about the hill in a lively and informative discussion for the public to understand everything that she has learned over the years.

SRAC will also have many artifacts found at Spanish Hill that will be discussed and invite the public to bring artifacts that they have found at this site over generations as well. Most impressive will be a BRAND NEW exhibit unveiled at this event - a blue slate amulet with incredible art carved into it - to include a wolf
- making this presentation is a MUST SEE by anyone with interest in Spanish Hill.
