Tuesday March 5th - Faces of the Past by Deb Twigg

(WAVERLY, NY) "Faces from Our Past" will be presented at The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC),  345 Broad Street , Waverly, NY  from 6:30 - 7:30pm on Tuesday, March 5th . Local historian and Executive Director of SRAC, Deb Twigg will be presenting new research concerning  the origin of Pennsylvania’s Susquehannock culture based on her research that is currently being published in the national magazine, Ancient American.

Look into sculpted pottery faces created by ancient hands nearly 600 years ago and wonder: Were the people buried in the Athens site referred to by archaeologists as the Murray Garden actually a former chief and his followers that had fled from their overthrown “kingdom” almost three thousand miles away? Did the Susquehannock culture develop from the mingling of this collapsed Mississippian culture and our local prehistoric peoples? Join us as the author of the recent SRAC Journal and Ancient American article on this topic, shares the findings that convinced professionals that this information warrants further inquiry into our locality and the role it played in the origin of the Susquehannock people.

A general admission donation of $6 for adults and $4 for SRAC members is requested.  Free admission to the SRAC exhibit hall is included in this donation.  (Free admission for all students every day at SRAC.)For more information, visit, email, or call the Center at 607-565-7960.
