This past week Slippery Rock University named the Archaeology Lab in honor of Mr. Edmund Dlutowski. Ed, an archaeology enthusiast, has been inviting SRU students for years to participate in digs throughout the area, specifically the Old Stone House. Ed has excavated countless sites throughout Pennsylvania and as far away as the Casma Valley in Peru.
Ed and his family enjoyed listening to several speakers at the event including Interim Dean Ms. Jennifer Keller, coordinator for the Stone House Center for Public Humanities and History Professor Dr. Aaron Cowan, Anthropology professor Dr. Aksel Casson, and SRU alumni Alex Tabor, Dan Gladis, and Joe Vertosick.
The event concluded with President Cheryl Norton’s reading of the SRU Council of Trustees Resolution, and a plaque unveiling for Ed, officially naming the lab “The Edmund Dlutowski Laboratory of Archaeological Science.”
