Charles County Archaeological Society

All are welcome to join us at the first meeting of the Charles County Archaeological Society on February 12, 2008, 7:30 to 9:00 PM, at the historic Train Station in La Plata. The Train Station is located at 101 Kent Avenue (see map below). The Society will be dedicated to archaeological research in Charles County and offer opportunities for public involvement in all aspects of research.

Location of Train Station in La Plata.

The meeting will start with some brief organizational issues and end with my presentation on 17th and early 18th-century Colonial sites in Southern Maryland. I'll be talking about some of the early historic artifacts and features that we likely will uncover at Port Tobacco and at other sites around the County.

The Society, tentatively, will meet the second Tuesday of each month, except for the Summer months of July and August, and will feature invited speakers, workshops in artifact identification, and other activities in accordance with the interests of the members. The Society will form under the aegis of the Archeological Society of Maryland.

This will be fun...join us.
