SWEP Greater Philadelphia will host an in-person tour of the I-95 Archaeology Center in Philadelphia!  

The I-95 Archaeology Center is the temporary working laboratory and public outreach venue for AECOM’s ongoing I-95 Girard Avenue Interchange Improvement Project. The project area extends for three contiguous miles through the ancestral lands of the Lenape (Delaware) people, later settled largely by immigrants who brought diverse cultures to the growing industrial Delaware Riverfront. Interpretive artifact exhibits at the Center explore change over time through the material culture of everyday life, the archaeology of local industries and their products, and more. The Penn Treaty Museum galleries, housed in the same building, highlight the history of the Treaty of Friendship between William Penn and Lenape leaders in 1682.
