War of 1812 Archaeology
In Maryland and Beyond: Written by Archaeologists for Everybody

Maryland State Highway Administration’s Archaeologists have joined in on the commemoration of the bicentennial of the war of 1812 by publishing a blog that shares information on the latest excavations and findings about that conflict.  In addition to sharing details of sites along Maryland highways, they have guest articles by archaeologists who are working on related investigations around the State.

There are some fascinating column and we have enjoyed reading about Caulk’s field, Joshua Barney and much more.  And readers of a Window on Cecil County’s Past will find Dr. Jim Gibb’s four serialized installments on Fort Hollingsworth to be of interest as he provides insight on last year’s dig and looks more broadly at the enemy incursion on the Elk River.  Here’s a link to the blog.  `
