2019 Workshops in Archaeology
November 9, 2019
300 North Street

Sponsored by: State Museum of Pennsylvania
The Archaeology Section of the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg invites you to attend our annual Workshops in Archaeology program on Saturday, November 9, 2019. Last year’s popular theme Exploring the Susquehannock Indians of Central Pennsylvania will be continued with an examination of Western Pennsylvania’s Monongahela Indians. We have invited a panel of experts to share their knowledge and research with us on this mysterious culture. The Monongahela were the dominant Indian culture in southwestern Pennsylvania, Ohio and northern West Virginia around 1000 AD, but by 1635 they vanish from the archaeological record. This year’s Workshops in Archaeology will explore the mystery surrounding their disappearance and discuss topics concerning the events that led to their demise.
