Ok now that we’ve gotten the formalities out of the way, I want to welcome the world to the US Route 301 Archaeology blog.  This blog will excite the senses and intrigue the mind as we explore and learn about all the amazing Archaeological excavations that are on-going in advance of construction for the US Route 301 project.  For more information about the US Route 301 project please visit this website,

Over the next year or so, I’ll be providing weekly updates on the progress of the Archaeology program.  So let us begin our journey at the Elkins Archaeological Site!  The Elkins Archaeological site dates to the late 17th through the 18thcentury.  To learn more about the Elkins site please view this brochure.

The phase III excavation of this site begins June 4th so stay tuned for more amazing finds as we begin more work at this and other Archaeology sites on the US Route 301 project!
