Developer agrees to survey land for Indian artifacts
Developers of property next to York County's planned life and environment museum say they will do a thorough archaeological survey on nearly 400 acres of former museum property.
The announcement came after a meeting between developers and staffers at the state Historic Preservation office.

University scholars and archaeologists had criticized the York County Culture and Heritage Museums for not thoroughly searching the 400-acre site during the seven years its nonprofit association owned the property.

Leaders of the joint venture company created to manage the development say they plan to leave a large portion of the site as open space, preserving the historical, cultural and environmental features located there.

That's the whole thing.
