A Race Against Time: Maryland Archaeology and the Quest to Recover History

Kirsti Uunila, Historic Preservation Planner for Calvert County, and Jason Tyler, AAHA Vice President, were recently interviewed by Stephanie Sperling of the Lost Towns Project in Anne Arundel County, regarding AAHA's recent work in Battle Creek and Hunting Creek in Calvert County.   Stephanie has put together a great video that incorporates part of the interview and highlights the imminent threat to Maryland's cultural resources from Climate Change and associated weather events.

Research indicates that one-third of archaeological sites in Anne Arundel County are threatened by weather and other natural hazards.

Find out what measures are being taken and how you can help by watching The Lost Towns Project video, which was produced in collaboration with Anne Arundel County and supported by Preservation Maryland's Heritage Fund Grant.
