    Archaeologists to display what they’ve found during I-95 construction

    Dig deep enough and you’ll find history that pre-dates Interstate 95 and the neighborhoods it cuts through.

    Archaeologists helping with the I-95 construction in the Riverwards found that out last year, and they have plans to once again display the artifacts they found. PlanPhilly reports the Central Delaware Advocacy Group, New Kensington Community Development Corporation, PennDOT and the URS Corporation will host an event Nov. 15 to show off their findings over the last year.

    Exhibits and explanations of the artifacts displayed last year will be on hand for anyone who missed the event last fall, but contributors will also bring artifact they’ve found more recently, including foods and utensils uncovered during the dig.

    Nov. 15, 6:30 to 9 p.m., you’ll be able to see the full set-up and talk to archaeologists at the Kensington High School for the Creative and Performing Arts.
