Report Complete

Yep, another in the PTAP team's series of reports on our work at Port Tobacco has just been completed by Pete, Anne, and Kelley. We will probably add a few bits here and there, but I expect we will post it on the Society for the Restoration of Port Tobacco's website ( by the middle of January.

This is the first substantive analysis and report writing by the guys and I hope all of our readers will enjoy what they have prepared. Hopefully, they will collaborate on an interpretive piece for the journal Maryland Archeology in the next few months. They are collaborating on three papers that will be presented at the annual meeting of the Middle Atlantic Archaeological Conference in Ocean City later this winter.

In the meantime, the entire team will continue to provide nearly daily updates on our work and related topics. Work on the Preserve America grant-funded work continues apace and we hope to return to the Swann House site as soon as the weather permits. We will focus on the interior excavation units, seeking preserved deposits on the cellar floor.
