The 2010 IUP Archaeological Field School at the Johnston Site, Indiana County, Pennsylvania, is now on YouTube in the form of a video created by senior Thomas Wambach. The field school excavated a Late Prehistoric site in southern Indiana County.
Undergraduates in the Archaeology Track and graduate students in the M.A. in Applied Archaeology program participated in the field school.
The excavations are directed by Drs. Sarah Neusius and Beverly Chiarulli. This was the third season that excavations have been conducted at this site.
The investigation is part of a long-term research project, “The IUP Late Prehistoric Project.” Since 2000, sites in northern and southern Indiana County have been investigated. A major focus has been the recovery of corn, beans, squash, and tobacco, which have been used to date the sites to A.D. 1300–1450.
