Meeting of CCAS

On Tuesday, January 13, 2009, 7:30PM at the Port Tobacco Courthouse, Bruce Thompson will offer an illustrated presentation on his recent work at the Grieb site.

This is an incredibly rich 17th-century site on the Eastern Shore with one of the largest collections of British pottery that I have ever seen. I suspect that this was both a dwelling and a store and, as such, might offer a glimpse into what some of the Port Tobacco dwelling/stores have in store for us. Quantities of tin-glazed earthenware recovered from some of the unreported excavations at Port Tobacco in the 1970s are similar to the slipwares recovered from the Grieb site in both numbers and condition.

Before Bruce begins his presentation, I will talk a little about our upcoming fieldwork in and around Port Tobacco beginning in February.

All are welcome...there is no fee, just good fellowship.
