South Chuctanunda CreekOn May 27, 2014 2014, Dr. Hope Luhman and Mr. Delland Gould will be giving a talk on the archeology that was done in preparation for the Amsterdam Bridge project.

The talk sponsored by the Friends of Schoharie Crossing will be held at 6:30 in the Enders House at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site, 129 Schoharie Street, Fort Hunter NY.

Dr. Luhman and Mr. Gould from the Louis Berger Group will discuss the archeological excavations at the Chuctanunda Terrace site at the confluence of Chuctanunda Creek and the Mohawk River in Amsterdam. First discovered in 2010 as part of the proposed Amsterdam Bridge Project, the work was sponsored by the New York State Thruway Authority. The Chuctanunda Terrace site preserves evidence of 6,000 years of occupation beginning with small campsites in the late Archaic period and continuing through to the late nineteenth century.

Following the talk refreshments will be served, and those who are interested can stay for a meeting of the Friends of Schoharie Crossing. All are welcome.
