Drs. Sarah Neusius and Beverly Chiarulli from the Department of Anthropology presented papers on their research in western Pennsylvania at the Mid-Atlantic Archaeological Conference in Ocean City, Md., and at the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology in Harrisburg, Pa., in March and April.
Their presentation at the MAAC on March 21 was titled “The IUP Late Prehistoric Project: A Regional Survey in the Eastern Tributaries of the Central Allegheny Valley in Pennsylvania.” During the SPA, they presented two papers. The first, by Neusius and Chiarulli, was titled “More New Perspectives on the Johnston Site: The 2008 Excavations”. The second, by Chiarulli and Neusius, was titled “Update on the IUP Late Prehistoric Project.” The papers discussed various aspects of the IUP Late Prehistoric Project, including results of the investigations during the Summer 2008 Archaeological Field School.
