Digging the City:
The Archaeology of Northern Liberties, Kensington,

PennDOT is undertaking a long-term project to improve and rebuild I-95 in Philadelphia. The firm AECOM Archaeologists has been retained to implement a plan to preserve Philadelphia’s historic waterfront through scientific excavation and research. Join us as Steve Tull of AECOM Archaeologists highlights how the neighborhood archaeological discoveries and research will recreate historical life at distinct points in time from 6000 BC to AD 1900.
