Camp Security is the only POW camp from the Revolutionary War to survive modern development. Hidden beneath a farm field, its exact location had been a mystery until archaeologists discovered the camp’s stockade in 2022. In this presentation, you will explore the significance of Camp Security in our nation’s history, the methods that archaeologists used to find it, and plans for the site’s future.
John Crawmer is the Lead Archaeologist of the Camp Security Archaeology Project in York, PA. He has been working to find the Camp Security stockade since 2019. He also has archaeological experience in Massachusetts, Maryland, and Israel.
