“A Brief History of Historical Archaeology in Maryland’s First Capital”, with Silas Hurry, Curator of Collections and Archaeological Laboratory Director. Visitor Center Auditorium, 18751 Hogaboom Lane, St. Mary’s City, MD 20686. For the better part of fifty years, Historic St. Mary’s City has been exploring the archaeological treasures of Maryland’s founding site and first capital. However, for many years before the state established the museum, an intriguing cast of individuals had undertaken “archaeological” excavations in St. Mary’s City. These explorers ranged from dilettantes to antiquarians to architectural historians, and all made their own unique contributions to our knowledge of the City. This presentation will summarize and discuss these early explorations, and also describe the birth and development of the research efforts led by the museum’s archaeologists in the five decades since our founding. Many intriguing characters from the past and more recent times will be discussed. The presentation will be highly illustrated with images of past work. Free. 7:00 p.m. (240) 895-4990 or info@HSMCdigshistory.org. www.HSMCdigshistory.org.
