This model of the Schultz Site, a late 16th century Susquehannock village discovered near the town of Washington Boro, Pennsylvania, is based on archaeological evidence uncovered by a Pennsylvania Historical Commission research team during a 1930-32 investigation. Similar to other Susquehannock settlements, the Schultz Site village consisted of numerous longhouses surrounded by a palisade enclosure that protected inhabitants from enemy war parties and wild animals, such as bears.
