Cabela’s Event 2012
The public is invited to attend an event sponsored by the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology at Cabela’s Outfitter store, Hamburg on Sunday, October 21, 2012. This day long program will feature archaeologists from The State Museum of Pennsylvania, displays of archaeological materials by local collectors, and a twenty foot replica of a Native American dugout canoe. Bring your artifacts for identification and learn about the value of archaeology in preserving the heritage of your community.
Instruction and assistance will be available for recording archaeological sites in the Cultural Resources Database maintained by the Bureau for Historic Preservation. Preservation of our archaeological heritage is dependent on individuals who record their knowledge of archaeological collections and sites in the Pennsylvania Archaeological Site Survey files. These files are a valuable resource for archaeologist tasked with reviewing construction and development projects, and important for preserving our past for the future.
