Historical Archaeology Section Research at the Penn Museum

Historical Archaeology is the archaeology of the Modern World (1400 CE to Present). Recently in North America this field has expanded its interests beyond colonial and 19th century sites to 20th century sites.

The South Jersey Project is exploring a region in New Jersey that was almost empty of people in 1850 but by 1900 was a successful settlement of many farms centered on the town of Vineland founded in 1861 by Charles K. Landis of Philadelphia.
