Upcoming Events

So we haven't been in the field for awhile so there is no news to report on field or lab work. April has posted the new poll for the logo contest (which has already gotten a great number of votes!). Jim has posted about the meeting of the Charles County chapter of ASM. So...what to blog about? Upcoming events sounds good to me.

For those of you who don't know, April is Archaeology Month in Maryland. Along with statewide events and lectures, there is also the annual symposium held at the Maryland Historical Trust and in March the annual workshop in archaeology. While the event names and dates for Archaeology Month have not been announced, the spring workshop has. It takes place on Saturday March 8, 2008 at the Maryland Historical Trust. Among other topics, Jim will be hosting a talk on mapping a Colonial town site in which he will discuss our ongoing efforts to map the town and outlying areas of Port Tobacco. I am looking forward to not only his talk but the entire day since this will be my first time attending the workshop. More information can be found at the ASM website:

The spring symposium will be all about town founding and will be held on April 12th, 2008 at the 1st Presbyterian Church on Duke of Gloucester Street in Annapolis, MD, from 9am-3pm.

News of upcoming events for Maryland Archaeology Month including will be posted here as well.

So stay tuned!
