Archaeology Resumes with Lehigh University.
Archaeology Professor David Small of Lehigh University has been working with
teams of students and with important volunteers from Emmaus on excavations at the 1803 House.
Lehigh’s enterprise was not the first however, and due recognition must be given to Ryan Loughren
who was a teacher at the local 7 Generations Charter School. Ryan took several students to dig south
of the kitchen and exposed important walls to a building which we are today exploring.
For the past two years Lehigh students and Emmaus volunteers have been working to understand
the buried walls behind the kitchen. They have currently excavated a small section of what was a larger building.
What this building was is still undetermined. The best estimate to date is that it was a log cabin
which was used by the builders of the 1803 House, before the house was built.
