The Archaeological Conservancy BREAKING NEWS: In a stunning display of community, conservation organizations joined forces on the evening of March 18, 2014 to try their hand at the winning bid for the Junction Group Earthworks, a 20 acre tract of land containing a 2000 year old earthwork complex of at least eight earthen enclosures. The archaeological site was auctioned as a large farm field, and its desirable location increased the chance the land would be converted to residential development. The project was an emergency acquisition and failure would result in a loss of irreplaceable cultural material. The conservation coalition offered winning bids on four parcels totaling 192 acres - including a forest and the earthworks. The Conservancy must raise $70,000 by the scheduled closing in mid-July to become the owner of this unique site and to stabilize it. The preserve will contribute to public knowledge about the siteâ€™s significant and the importance of cultural resource preservation.
