Come see an actual on-site archaeological investigation as we search for an outlying artillery battery and line of communication.

Juniata College’s Dr. Jonathan Burns, along with several of his students, and western Pennsylvania veterans will continue an archaeological investigation as they search for the Fort’s missing artillery battery as shown on an original British map.

Fort Ligonier is proud to participate in a program that utilizes field archaeology to aid the recovery of veterans who have been injured in conflict.

Through a vast community effort that began in the 1940’s, Fort Ligonier has been authentically and meticulously restored to stand as the premier example of British colonial military architecture in the United States. Learn more riveting stories about Fort Ligonier’s archaeological history with a visit to the museum’s new Archaeology and Reconstruction Gallery.
