Archaeology Workshop on Saturday

This coming Saturday, March 7, the Maryland Historical Trust offers its annual day-long workshop at its offices in Crownsville (just outside of Annapolis). Between 9:00 AM and 3:30 PM there will be presentations on Maryland prehistory and underwater archaeology, historic ceramics, clay tobacco pipes, Indian bows, and the controversial subject of whether there were human inhabitants in the Western Hemisphere before the Clovis people (more than 12,000 years ago).

Details can be found on the MHT website:

This is a great opportunity to meet professional and avocational archaeologists and to learn some of the basics of the field.

Registration is a modest $7 for non-members and $5 for members. Not a member? Go ahead and will save you money in the long run and there are benefits such as the semi-annual journal, Maryland Archeology.
