The interior of the Meadowcroft Rockshelter in Avella, Pennsylvania. This site features an archaeological dig preserved as it was left after the dig was completed in the late 1970s. Small tags dot the stones indicating strata. Wooden ladders and walkways are present, allowing for access to harder to get to portions of the dig site. Photo by Mike Luoma.
