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.
