The New York State Museum is pleased to be able to offer Robert E. Funk's classic work Archaeological Investigations In The Upper Susquehanna Valley, New York State Volume 1. This volume presents the results of a decade-long multidisciplinary research program on the prehistory in the Upper Susquehanna. Over 20 sites were excavated, many with repeated occupations of the Archaic and Woodland periods. The project added a vast body of information about the prehistoric occupation and environmental history of the region. The various chapters cover the project's research design, environmental contexts, background information on European contact, and synthetic treatments of the project's results.

This is a critical volume for understanding the human and environmental history of New York and the broader Middle Atlantic and New England regions.
