Shad Fishing and Stone Tools: Early Native Americans along the Schuylkill River

The SCA is pleased to have Matthew D. Harris, RPA, to present his findings of the early native people of the Schuylkill Valley, who were using the river resources, fishing for Shad, and living on the land thousands of years before us. Matt is currently Senior Archaeologist and Principal Geospatial Analyst at URS Corporation. Matt is going to discuss the context of the land during this time, the Middle Woodland Period people and their forays and settlement in the Schuylkill Valley for seasonal fish migrations and regional trade in tool making resources. Weather permitting, the indoor presentation at the Lock 60, Locktender House will be followed by a moderately difficult 1.5 hour hike up the first ravine to the same vistas of the Schuylkill River Valley seen by these early native people.  Suggested donation of $5 per person

    I also wanted to apologize for not making it to this event...I am really, really interested in this topic and wondering if anyone knows whether this talk will be repeated.

    Does anyone have directions? Mapquest takes you to the Mont Clair firehouse. I'm guessing I drive to end of Tow Path Rd. to find Lockhouse 60??

    Just wanted to say that I didn't come up with this wonderful event. A member posted it, which is what anyone can do, as long as it is about wild edibles!
