Dan Coates, President of the Archeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake (ASNC), will be the speaker for the Elsworth Shank Lecture series sponsored by The Susquehanna Museum at the Lockhouse this Thursday, March 19th at 7:00 pm. The program will be held in the Council Chamber of Havre de Grace City Hall on Pennington Avenue just south of Juniata.

Dan’ topic will be about the ASNC’s field investigations of the Susquehanna Canal, just north of Octoraro Creek.  The 2008 activity, supervised by Ann Persson Bennet, will be the focus of ASNC’ first published MiscellaneousPaper. The Canal was the first such constructed in the United States and chapter members, under Dan’s direction, cleared the undergrowth and saplings that covered it to reveal much of the structure in good condition.
