Enjoy an exclusive Insider Tour of Meadowcroft Rockshelter with James M. Adovasio, Ph.D., who achieved international acclaim with his archeological excavation of the Rockshelter in 1973. Dr. Adovasio, who serves as provost at Mercyhurst College and director of the Mercyhurst Archaeological Institute, will present a lecture and lead a special tour of the site.
Meadowcroft Rockshelter, the oldest site of human habitation in North America, is located in Avella, Pa., 35 miles southwest of Pittsburgh. The National Historic Landmark features a massive, 16,000-year-old rock overhang used by the region’s earliest inhabitants for shelter, and was recently named one of the “Five Great Places to See Evidence of First Americans” by Smithsonian magazine.
Lecture begins at 10 a.m. in the visitor’s center with tours of the site to immediately follow.
