Upcoming Talks

On Tuesday, November 11, at 7:30-9:00 PM, Dr. Julie King of St. Mary's College will present the results of the archaeological search for Charles County's first courthouse. This will be an illustrated talk and it will be held in the Port Tobacco Courthouse as part of a monthly meeting of the county's archaeological society. There are no fees and all are welcome.

On Wednesday, November 19, at 7:30-9:00 PM, I will be giving an illustrated lecture on Maryland cemeteries at the barn at Montpelier Mansion in Laurel, Maryland. I will be talking about our work on the Port Tobacco cemeteries, as well as those throughout Maryland and Delaware, discussing the search for cemeteries, and their documentation and restoration. Examples will include the Colonial church cemetery at Port Tobacco, Mulberry Grove (just south of Port Tobacco), a 17th-century cemetery in Calvert County, 19th-century St. Nicholas cemetery at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, and others.

Hope to see you at both.
