The Archaeology Section of The State Museum of Pennsylvania in partnership with the Pennsylvania Archaeological Council invites you to attend the annual Workshops in Archaeology on Saturday, October 28, 2017.
Immigration, ethnicity, and multi-culturalism are significant issues in contemporary American society. Archaeologists can examine these issues through the recovery and analysis of artifacts. Pennsylvania’s archaeological record is as diverse as its population and reflects upon our founding under William Penn as a welcoming place for freedom from religious persecution. Identifying and connecting with our ethnic origins is important as we strive to recognize our own sense of place in an ever-changing society.
This program is designed to provide the public with an overview of archaeological discoveries and research being conducted in the region. Papers presented at these sessions will focus on Ethnicity in the Archaeological Record as it can be identified at farmsteads, industrial sites, religious sites and other locations in Pennsylvania. By recognizing cultural markers of preceding populations in Pennsylvania, archaeologists are better equipped to under-stand the fluid cultural landscape of our country.
