Archaeological Survey sets out to find first US gas well

The Buffalo News published a story covering members of UB's Archaeological Survey who recently spent two days in Fredonia, NY, working to uncover evidence of the first natural gas well in the United States. Although the team of archaeologists did not make any large discoveries, according to Archaeological Survey director, Dr. Douglas Perrelli, he expects to return to the site before winter and would like to bring back a larger field crew to conduct excavations next summer.
