Summer Session I, May 29- July July 6, 2012
This season's research will focus on rediscovering the multi-component Martin site and exploring the side boundaries and remains of the lithic manufacturing locality that is the Martin II site. Students will learn about the Native occupations of Western New York, fieldwork methods including mapping and excavation, and laboratory procedures.
This year we will also be helping to restore a historic cemetery in Ellicottville, NY using ground penetrating radar.
