Paul is is acknowledged as the leading authority on the rock art of the lower Susquehanna River. He has been visiting, documenting, and researching the Safe Harbor Petroglyphs for more than 40 years. His interest in Indigenous Culture goes back even further.
In 2002, Paul led the Safe Harbor Petroglyph Recording Project for which he received the 2003 Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Award for archaeology. He has appeared in numerous TV programs, news stories, and magazines, and has written chapters for the books The Rock Art of Eastern North America (2004) and Native Americans in the Susquehanna River Valley, Past and Present (2013). Paul is a past president of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology, and a board member of the Eastern States Rock Art Research Association.
More important to him than his work within the archaeological community, Paul has been blessed with the opportunity throughout his adult life to learn from Native American Elders and Teachers and participate in sacred activity and ceremony. In 1992, Paul helped organize the Peace and Dignity Journeys, a 13,000-mile spiritual relay with participants starting from symbolic Four Directions – Massachusetts, California, Alaska, and Argentina – and arriving in Teotihuacan, Mexico on October 12, 1992 to celebrate 500 years of Indigenous survival in the Americas. He was also a key in the effort to save the historic site of the Susquehannock people’s last settlement from development and preserve and interpret it as York County’s Native Lands County Park.
Paul brings his blend of archaeological knowledge and Native American sensibility to make for a unique and unforgettable experience visiting the Safe Harbor Petroglyphs.
