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.


 

Climate Change and the Risk to Archaeological Resources - Coming to a Creek Near You!

This evening, Jeanne Ward and I will be presenting the findings of our survey of Hunting Creek, Calvert County.  The survey was undertaken in order to document archaeological resources that are at risk from the impacts of Climate Change on Calvert County's shorelines.  This is the second survey that AAHA has completed in respect to these potential impacts on Calvert County's cultural heritage.  The analysis of the data was completed with the expert assistance of Christopher Polglase of Gray and Pape, Inc.  Presentation will begin at 7pm, Monday September 18th, in the Calvert County Library, Prince Frederick, Maryland.
