That mile-wide Susquehanna River has done more than carve out a significant boundary for York and Lancaster counties. It has unduly separated the histories of these two early Pennsylvania counties – lands that share a story that goes back centuries. In recent years, historians from both counties have been crossing over the Susquehanna to explore common ground. Lancaster County’s Adam Zurn, founder of Uncharted Lancaster, is one of those researchers, and he will present at the York County Writers Roundtable about obscure and well-known stories that York and Lancaster share. Part of his presentation will touch on the significance and meaning of the Susquehanna River petroglyphs, 1,000-year-old Native American rock carvings. He will present at the York County Writers Roundtable at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 1, at the York County History Center, 250 E. Market Street.  His presentation is free and open to the public and will be streamed on the York County History Center’s Facebook page.
