County Fair Exhibit

The Charles County Fair is coming up in September from the 10th through the 14th. We are preparing an exhibit covering the archaeology that has been done in Port Tobacco to be shown at the fair. It will cover the history of the town, maps, artifacts, our research design, and what we have learned so far.

I am in the process of pulling artifacts from our collections to be shown off at the fair. Since the history of the town covers from the prehistoric times up until now, we will have a variety of artifacts to show off.

We will be focusing specifically on those artifacts that are temporally diagonstic from all time periods. Among the artifacts to be displayed are Potomac Creek pottery and projectile points, 17th Century ceramics (mainly Buckley Earthenware), 18th Century ceramics (Chinese Porcelain and Staffordshire Combed Slipware) and a few of the odds and ends things.

So come on out to the Charles County Fair in September! I am in need of some funnel cake so I might just have to drive down and check it out! Hope to see some of you there!

Ahhhh funnel cakes, the staple of summer time fairs and THE Boardwalk in OC. Maybe start off with some Boardwalk fries, a piece of Grotto Pizza, a polish sausage and topped off with Fudge/Ice Cream/Taffy.

Then a pecid or two!
