On this Wednesday evening, a crowd of over 50 people packed the Historical Society to hear Dr. Jim Gibb’s report about an archaeological investigation focused on discovering Fort Hollingsworth, a War of 1812 redoubt that protected Elkton against the British. Over the summer, Dr. Gibb served as the lead investigator for a field-school that focused on this question. The property is located at Elk Landing, at the top of the Elk River.
The meeting was hosted by the archaeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake. Here is a link to Dr. Gibb’s report, which is posted on the Elk Landing website.
