Oct. 10th Meeting of Archaeological Society Presents Findings From Search for War of 1812 Fort at Elk Landing

Announcement From the Archaeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake

The Archaeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake (ASNC) will present the results of this summer’s field-school at Elk Landing, which focused on a search for Fort Hollingsworth, a War of 1812 redoubt.  The meeting takes places at the Historical Society of Cecil County, 135 E. Main Street, Elkton, MD., and starts at 7 p.m.  Light refreshments will be available at 6:30 p.m.

Dr. Jim Gibb, the lead investigator, will present the findings of the investigation following a brief business meeting of ASNC.  He recently gave this talk in Charles County and is repeating the presentation in Elkton.  It will also be given at the annual meeting of the Archaeological Society of Maryland in La Plata on October 20th and in Bel Air at the Historical Society of Harford County in February 2013.  The meeting is open to the public and the ASNC is serving light refreshments.  This is an ideal opportunity to mingle with this group that does important work on the northern Chesapeake and hear the results of this local investigation.  The fieldwork took place in June on a historic tract of property managed by the Historic Elk Landing Foundation.
