About the 2013 Workshop
Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 23rd, when the Maryland Historical Trust and the Archeological Society of Maryland, Inc., host their 22nd Annual Workshop in Archeology. This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Stephen R. Potter, regional archeologist with the National Park Service for the National Capital Region, who will discuss what archeological research discovered about the Battle of Antietam, including the discovery of forgotten Confederate regiments, and the dispelling of a period myth about a skirmish that never happened.
Other scheduled sessions include a workshop on tin-glazed earthenware, a session on the Wreck of the Levin J. Marvel, a workshop on equestrian artifacts of the Mid-Atlantic, and a variety of presentations on local archeological projects, both terrestrial and underwater, that are seeking volunteer participation.
The workshop will be held in Crownsville, with registration beginning at 9 am. Registration is at the door; $7.00 for general admission, $5.00 for ASM members and students. There is ample parking on site.
