The Byrd Leibhart site (36Yo170) is located in York County, Pennsylvania. This Susquehannock Indian site dates to the late 17th century and is associated with a period of tremendous upheaval for this American Indian tribe. More information on this site can be found here. As noted at this link, Susquehanna’s Indians by Barry C. Kent is a great resource for learning about the Susquehannock and their extensive archaeological record.
