    Amateur archaeologists digging up county's lost history

    The role of amateur archaeologists in Schuylkill County and around Pennsylvania cannot be understated, according to experts in the field.

    About 22,000 archeological sites are recorded in Pennsylvania, said Kurt Carr, senior curator with the State Museum of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg.

    "Close to half of those were recorded by amateur archaeologists," he said.

    Of those sites, 84 are located in Schuylkill County with some dating back 12,000 years, he said.

    Cool story Jeff.
