November 24, 2009
PHILADELPHIA – Archaeologists, who are working at the site of the future
SugarHouse casino at the Delaware River, have found hundreds of artifacts dating
from 1500 B.C. The discoveries include more than a dozen small tools and a fire
Mark Shaffer, a preservation specialist for the Pennsylvania Historical and
Museum Commission, says the American Indian artifacts collected over the past
several weeks have doubled the total number gathered at the site since 2007.
Construction of the SugarHouse Casinos is already underway. The excavation of
this area is expected to be completed soon, and the archeologists will move on
to search for a British fort believed to be under what was once Penn Street.
This excavation site will eventually become a parking lot for the casino.
