Join the Summer 2017 Archaeological Field School

Do you like history? Interested in archaeology? Want to help a community learn about its past? The University of Maryland Department of Anthropology invites you to join the summer 2017 archaeological field school! Held in Easton, Maryland, we are documenting the heritage of a 200-year-old free black community at the invitation of current community members.

The six-week course in June and early July will focus on excavation methods, archaeological analysis, and community engagement as we research an 18th-century free African-American home and present our findings to neighbors and descendants.
