Join us as we travel across New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland to explore the rich history and archaeology of the French and Indian War. This epic struggle involving Native Americans, the English and French Empires, and Colonial forces was one of the first global conflicts and a defining moment in American history. On our journey we will meet with historians, archaeologists and Native Peoples at a variety of archaeological sites, museums, and interpretive centers.

In what is now the Upper Midwest, Native Americans constructed thousands of earthen mounds, more than in any other area of comparable size. We’ll visit the best surviving examples of these fascinating constructions, with an emphasis on sites of the Effigy Mound Culture, the characteristic moundbuilder culture of the region which created mounds in the shapes of mammals, birds, and reptiles.
