Wiedman Site

 The Wiedman site is a Late Woodland Kinzua Phase site near Bockmier 1 and Bockmier Point. It may be contemporaneous with those sites, or may represent an occupation shortly before or after those sites. A preliminary site description can be found in Northeastern Middle Woodland, from the Perspective of the Upper Allegheny Valley by Steven P. Howard (2010).

Rimsherds from the Wiedman site, representing 8 unique vessels. They represent the Late Woodland Allegheny Iroquois (aka Kinzua Phase) from around 800 years ago.
