PLEASE NOTE: All events and in-person programs have been canceled for the remainder of 2020 due to recent flood damage combined with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to offer virtual programs and to develop more online content. Our energies will be focused on completing repairs and making the Newlin Grist Mill better when we reopen. Thank you for your understanding.
The Archaeology Program seeks to evaluate archaeological resources and explore research questions concerning the development of the Newlin Grist Mill historic site while enhancing public knowledge and providing opportunities for the public to participate in the archaeological process. Excavations are conducted under the leadership of resident archaeologist Keith Doms with assistance from members of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology and volunteers from the community. Individuals and groups throughout the region volunteer one Saturday per month assisting with excavations and artifact cleaning. The project is bringing to light new evidence that reshapes earlier perceptions.
