Excavation at the Skew Arch, Allegheny Portage National Historic Site

IUP Archaeological Services offers consultation, on-site surveys, Phase I and Phase II evaluations, and full Phase III excavations of significant sites, with a focus on the Upper Ohio Valley.  

Directed by Dr. Phillip Neusius and housed in McElhaney Hall, IUP Archaeological Services is fully staffed to conduct field and laboratory projects, working with clients to maintain original project timetables and budgets.

Resources include GPS units and geophysical instruments including ground-penetrating radar, magnetometers, gradiometers, magnetic susceptibility instruments, and electrical resistivity; a 3-D scanner; a total data station; and ArcView software.
