Fieldwork Opportunities

Starting in September, PTAP will have field and laboratory opportunities for volunteers. These opportunities are particularly well-suited for candidates in the Certified Archeological Technician program of the Archeological Society of Maryland, but are open to all.

We would like to investigate another Union Encampment near Port Tobacco in September. Details forthcoming.

This Fall we anticipate undertaking investigations around the Burch House in advance of bathroom construction. Some of our readers may remember that the Port Tobacco Archaeological Project was, for all intents and purposes, born at this particular site from work that Scott and I did there in late Fall of 2006.

Later in the Fall, before the ground freezes, we anticipate additional excavations in Port Tobacco in search of Civil War era deposits.

Details of fieldwork opportunities will be announced when available. We will have a day-long lab at Port Tobacco this Saturday at the courthouse.
