In the spring of 2009 the Shippensburg Historical Society in conjunction with Shippensburg University offered me the opportunity to work as an Intern for the upcoming excavations at Fort Morris.  This was an offer that I gladly accepted and eagerly waited for the summer to start.  The archaeologist that over-saw the excavations from day one until the finish was Dr. Steve Warfel, retired PA State archaeologist. My experience working as an intern at Fort Morris was highly valuable and enriching. Thanks to the Shippensburg Historical Society and Shippensburg University, I learned how to apply History to archeology, how to make History exciting for those who come from different areas of study, how to conduct myself in a professional setting, and most importantly the Archaeological Process.
