A glass bead found among other artifacts at two historical locations near Geneva, New York.

Artifacts recovered from two Native American towns in Central New York are being showcased in a digitized collection via Cornell University. 

WAMC's Jim Levulis spoke with Kurt Jordan, an anthropology professor at Cornell and director of the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program, about the items recovered from the historical communities of White Springs and Townley-Read.

The artifacts will eventually be sent to the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum in Salamanca, NY.
