CAT and Port Tobacco

Power outages and other projects kept the team from Port Tobacco research today. Tomorrow I will participate in a meeting in which we hope to fine-tune the Archeological Society of Maryland's Certified Archeological Technician, or CAT, program.

The program, open to members of the Society, is designed to help candidates develop archaeological skills and systematically study the science without necessarily going back to school. It isn't a licensing program...CAT is continuing education.

Port Tobacco provides opportunities for candidates to receive training and to put that training to use. I hope we can provide more opportunities and more workshops at Port Tobacco, increasing participation in the research for ASM members across the State and, oh yeah, securing more free labor to advance understanding of Port Tobacco.
