Archaeology

At LACI we stress thorough, professional archaeological work.  Archaeologist Scott Parker has close to thirty years of experience in historical archaeology.  Our current excavations are at the Stoner Farm, just south of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania where we are working in and around the ruins of an 18th-century dwelling.  This was one of the early houses built and lived in by the Stoner Family in the 1760s, possibly earlier.

Sunday is Archaeology Day at the Stoner Farm!

We are out digging on Sundays when the weather allows.

You are invited to come try your hand at archaeology or just come watch - anytime between 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM.

For details see Volunteer

No Experience Necessary!

We at LACI feel that historic research is not just for the researcher and their professional colleagues but for everyone.

Stoner Farm Excavations

Artifacts

But just because our work is professionally done doesn't mean everyone who is doing it is a professional.  In fact most of our "crew" are volunteers both with LACI and with the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology Cumberland Valley Chapter.  We at LACI feel that historic research is not just for the researcher and their professional colleagues but for everyone.

Consequently we teach archaeology through hands on opportunities to anyone who wants to learn.  No "sandboxes" with salted artifacts or virtual archaeology.  All beginners work with experienced "diggers" ready to show them what to do and how to do it.  And when they find an artifact it is the first time anyone has seen it since it was used and discarded in the past.

So if your interested in volunteering in archaeology or just a little curious we invite you to come on out to the Stoner Farm and see for yourself.  Go to the Contact Us page to find out where we are located and how to contact us.
