WARREN, Pa. (AP) - An anthropology professor is inviting the public to tour a site in the Allegheny National Forest where she’s dug up evidence of a settlement dating back at least 1,000 years.

Clarion University anthropology professor Susan Prezzano says the site might be up to 3,000 years old.

She’s overseeing the dig along with officials from the forest, which bought the site in the late 1980s. The land had been a family farm in the 1800s and also gives the forest land next to the Allegheny River.

The open house is Tuesday and is in Forest County.

So far, Prezzano and her students have uncovered pieces of pottery and hammer stones, which are believed to have come from a Native American settlement.
