Meadowcroft Rockshelter

This week I've had a little bit of the cold that's going around so I'm a little delayed. Last Saturday I went out of town with my parents to...Avella. This is only funny if you've ever been to Avella, which I have, Kimmy (a.k.a.: Kim-bo-kay or Spicy) one of my college roomies lives there and let's just say it's a small town. Anyway, they have a rockshelter there, that is part of the Heinz History Center, where they found remains dating back to 16,000 years ago.

It really is a cool little place, they just built a beautiful building to showcase the area as well as a native american village and colonial town with representatives at each place to guide and inform you. Also one of the main archeologists, Dr. James Adovasio, is a professor at Mercyhurt College in Erie! This weekend is the last weekend it is open for this year but will reopen in the spring.

TIP: It's $10 for adults but there is a coupon in the Entertainment book!
