Meeting Schedule

Prehistoric Lithic Technology

John Cornman will share his  interest in prehistoric technology.   How did prehistoric Native Americans make and use the chipped stone artifacts we find today. During his program, John demonstrates how arrowheads are made and used, as well as some other prehistoric stone working skills.


Members  are also invited to bring items to Show and tell
 
Scripture Rocks Video 


Last year the Jefferson Count History Center contracted Ed Frank who is a local filmmaker to produce the Story of Douglas Stahlman with special funding trough the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts.  This will be the first public viewing of the finished program which will be marketed to TV later in the year.

Archaeology X


Brian Fritz will discuss the development of  his new invention for using power equipment to deep test archaeology sites.  He will also discuss a proposed project on the terrace at Parkers Landing  to look for deep occupational levels and potentially open an area for a chapter excavation this year.

Wilson Shute (36Cw05)

Between 1960 and 1963 Fred Brown led the Cussewago SPA chapter in an extensive excavation of the Wilson Shute Site.  When completed, he wrote a paper that was never published that included  site maps, and examples of pottery and artifacts.  Bill Black will present a review of the site history, research limitations, and examples of pottery and artifacts to provide a better understanding of this important site.
