Native American Foodways in Pennsylvania

Archaeologists have studied what Native Americans ate by examining the remains of plants and animals recovered from archaeological sites, analyzing charred food remains on the inside of pottery or on stone tools, and using ethnographic analogy. This exhibit explores 16,000 years of changing Native American foodways in Pennsylvania.
