Show Summary Details


The Center for American Archaeology (CAA) made several overtures to the New Philadelphia Association (NPA). It could not convince the NPA that they had the resources to sustain a research program at New Philadelphia, which had a unique history that needed to be remembered in the larger public memory. New Philadelphia is located on gently rolling hills with plowed and fallow fields. The artifacts found in a plowed field indicated that more substantial remains existed below the surface. By the end of the survey, the archaeology team had identified, flagged, and collected 7,073 artifacts. The presence of both domestic and architectural artifacts indicated that the Broad Way and Main Streets served as domestic sites. In general, the survey work showed that there was a high probability of locating the past, domestic occupations of the town.
