Susquehannock Village at Lemoyne

Type: 

Roadside

Archaeological excavations near here in the early 2000s uncovered a palisaded Susquehannock village dating from the early 1600s. Fragments of iron, brass, and glass beads indicated contact with Dutch traders and the English settlement of Jamestown, Va., between 1610 and 1624. Research at the site has led to an enhanced understanding of this Native American nation, including its settlement patterns and the internal organization of its villages.
