Enjoy an exclusive Insider Tour of Meadowcroft Rockshelter with James M. Adovasio, Ph.D., who achieved international acclaim with his archaeological excavation of the Rockshelter when work first began at the site in 1973. Dr. Adovasio 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 rock overhang used by the region’s earliest inhabitants for shelter as early as 19,000 years ago. Meadowcroft was named one of the “Five Great Places to See Evidence of First Americans” by Smithsonian magazine.
Dr. Adovasio’s presentation begins at 10 a.m. in the visitor’s center with tours of the Rockshelter to immediately follow.
