Early Native Americans along the Schuylkill River

Sunday, July 20th, 1 to 4 PM

Lock 60 at Schuylkill Canal Park, 400 Towpath Rd., Mont Clare, Pa, 610-917-8030

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 and living on the land thousands of years before us. 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 evident from lithic materials, biface and ceramic types found in our region. Weather permitting, the indoor presentation 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.

Ages: 12 and up with an adult, $10 donation, pre-registration required, meet at Locktender’s House.
