On Thursday March 31, 2011, Cornell professor Carol B. Griggs and her husband Bill came to the Chenango County Historical Society's Museum in Norwich to take 2 core samples from the Dave Walker dugout canoe. One was from the front end and the other was from the right side. Here are 7 photos of the operation. We hope to report the results at our next meeting on Thursday evening July 7.

We meet once a month year around at the Chenango County Historical Society's Museum in Norwich. From April through December we meet on the first Thursdays at 7:00 pm; from January through March we meet on the second Saturdays at 1:00 pm.
We usually have a dig going on for most of the warm seasons. Our annual dues are $26.00, which includes membership in the State Association. For more information, contact Donald A. Windsor at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our current membership drive addresses two groups: surface collectors and historians.
Our Chapter provides surface collectors of archaeological artifacts:
-- An opportunity to learn about the wider area surrounding your favorite sites.
-- A chance to show your collections and publish your knowledge.
-- How to properly classify and document your collection.
-- Where to find a permanent home for your collection.
Our Chapter provides historians:
-- An opportunity to extend your knowledge of history to prehistory.
-- A chance to learn about historic archaeology: - Farmstead - Railroad - Industrial.
One of our current projects is the dating of a dug-out canoe. Here is a photo of some of us obtaining samples for denrochronological dating.
