Join us in a journey of discovery as we study and interpret the East Steubenville Archaeological Site...

Archaeologists have excavated the East Steubenville site, a 4000-year-old encampment of Native American hunter-gatherers in Brooke County, West Virginia. Sponsored by WVDOT before construction of the WV Route 2 road-widening project, excavations on this wind-swept ridgetop in 1999-2000 yielded thousands of artifacts and new insights on the poorly known Panhandle Archaic culture.

  • Study the archaeology of the East Steubenville site, a story that first began in 1938.
  • Review interpretations of what the land was like 4000 years ago, who the people were and how they lived.
  • Visit us again - we'll be adding more findings from ongoing analysis of the archaeology and artifacts.
