NORTHUMBERLAND - At 3 p.m. Sunday, the Friends of Joseph Priestley House will present a program on the archeological investigations and findings at Priestley House.
The guest speaker is Steve Warfel, who was senior curator of archaeology at the State Museum of Pennsylvania from 1980 through 2007. He has actively conducted archaeological investigations on prehistoric and historic period sites for the past 37 years.
From 1991 through 2003, Warfel instructed archaeological field school classes in cooperation with various colleges and universities at these historic sites Ephrata Cloister, Eckley Miners Village, Fort Augusta and the Joseph Priestley House and Laboratory.
In 2009, Warfel began work on the excavation of colonial era Fort Morris in Shippensburg. For this program he is expected to bring objects found during the Priestley House excavations and now stored in the State Museum.
The program will be in the Pond Building on the grounds of the Priestley House, 472 Priestley Ave.
Although the archeology program is intended for volunteers and docents, the public is invited at no cost.
