Recent Archaeology Site


Sept. 2016 Chapter 28 members assembled to excavate a privy on the property of Friends Meeting House in York. The historical background of the property proved to be very exciting and many historical artifacts were uncovered. The York Meeting House is a historic Quaker house located at 134 West Philadelphia Street in York, PA. It was built in 1766 and expanded in 1783. The original building was a two-bay brick structure with a gable roof. Many artifacts ranging from glassware, old bottles, ceramics, bricks, old leather shoes, buttons, nails, etc. These items will be returned to the Meeting house ( once cleaned and cataloged) to be placed on display.
