Event Overview

After extensive planning with Team Rubicon, I am proud to offer a one of kind support event. Come help archaeologist Dr. Jonathan Burns, from Juniata College, identify pieces of the past in a metal detection and limited excavation survey at the Colonial-era Fort Ligonier in Ligonier, PA. Dr. Burns will teach basic metal detection and give an informal presentation of the site’s history and his work to involve the veteran community in a military heritage site.
