In 1942, amateur archeologists interested in collecting local Indian artifacts, excavated two rock shelters near the town of Broomall, Pennsylvania. Their romp in the woods turned serious when they uncovered a skeleton in one of the rock shelters. Now on exhibit, see a replica of the Broomall Rock Shelters and discover how Lenape families or hunting parties may have occupied them for over 3000 years. This unique exhibit also includes some of the hundreds of items excavated from the site such as 200 stone and bone tools, pendants, over 1000 decorated ceramics fragments, and European trade goods.
