‘The Archaeology of Guinea’

Thane Harpole of DATA Investigations, LLC, and The Fairfield Foundation, gave a special presentation on “The Archaeology of Guinea” on Friday at Buck’s Store Museum, Bena. During the Guinea Heritage Association’s Fourth Friday talk, Harpole shared information about the excavations on the Jenkins Neck site which revealed a combination of a small Woodland period village, an early 17th-century English settlement, as well as a late 19th-century occupation. The steady erosion of the site also provides an important lesson about the fragility of archaeological resources. Excavating at the Jenkins Neck site was Harpole’s first archaeology project in Gloucester County while studying at the College of William and Mary.
