Native American Archaeology
Have you ever held a 5,000-year-old spear point in your hand? This program shines a spotlight on our collection of strikingly preserved Native American artifacts unearthed near Gettysburg. We’ll discuss the customs and possible uses for each item and some of the techniques archaeologists have employed to decipher the hidden history of Pennsylvania’s indigenous peoples. Participants will handle dozens of real Native American artifacts from our collection.
Native American Archaeology is part of the 2023 Hands-On History Educational Programming Series. This event is free and open to the public.
