“Carr and Moeller have written a primer for the next generation of archaeologists in Pennsylvania, an excellent summary of Pennsylvania’s deep past for high school and college students and for all readers.”
—Paul A. Raber, Heberling Associates
“Finally, an accessible and profusely illustrated account of Pennsylvania’s past that will be useful to students in high school and introductory college courses as well as to the many modern Pennsylvanians who are curious about the people who were here before us. Carr and Moeller share their extensive knowledge while punctuating the archaeological story with first-person vignettes and the voices of other archaeologists describing their passion for the field. I look forward to using this book as a resource in working with the public and in my undergraduate teaching.”
—Sarah Neusius, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, author of Seeking Our Past: An Introduction to North American Archaeology
“Going beyond typology, this book humanizes the people who lived in Pennsylvania's past and the archaeologists who study them. It is up-to-date and useful for college students.”
—Renata B. Wolynec, Edinboro University
“First Pennsylvanians is a comprehensive and enjoyable look at the state’s prehistoric past, enhanced with narratives, graphics, and images. Carr and Moeller have done an outstanding job of presenting that past to all Pennsylvanians as well as a wider audience.”
—Gregory D. Lattanzi, New Jersey State Museum
“Kurt W. Carr and Roger W. Moeller have produced what will surely be the definitive monograph on Pennsylvania’s archaeological past for decades to come. This richly illustrated work is aimed at the novice yet it could serve as a useful desk reference for professionals, especially those without easy access to the state’s archaeological grey literature. . . . First Pennsylvanians is a magnum opus for those interested in Pennsylvania’s past.”
—April Beisaw, H-Penn
“This copiously illustrated investigation of the history of Native Americans in Pennsylvania is a significant addition to regional archaeological surveys. . . . First Pennsylvanians will be an important resource for high school students, undergrads, and everyone with an interest in the archaeology of the region.”
—American Archaeology Magazine
