Desisti Site : 36BR20 Exhibit


Currently we have entered a new phase of undertaking the excavation at the Desisti Site, 36BR20 and are documentation of a Native American site that dates to around 1050 A.D. that is being impacted by modern land use and construction along the Susquehanna River.

In the summer and fall of 2016, individuals came together, guided by professional archaeologists and scholars, to excavate portions of a prehistoric village. Pottery specimens, broken stone implements, traces of food debris, and other snapshots of the original people of this place and space were recovered.

Work is now continuing with cataloging and analyzing these materials. Our explorations generated much excitement in the region and we plan to continue our research.

We update this exhibit often with new finds from this excavation!
