American Indians in New York State - Seneca Dig Site Feature
By Andy Clegg
Seneca White Springs, NY – Over the past few summers, Kurt Jordan from Cornell University has been taking students to the White Springs Dig Site in Geneva New York, which holds the remnants of a 300 year old Seneca community. Over the course of several weeks, the students learn many of the basic techniques of archaeology.
In addition to instructing burgeoning archaeologists, the site provides valuable insight into how Seneca people lived during the early Colonial period, and how the process of Archaeology is carried out today. Andy Clegg reports.
