Community Archaeology with the Washington College Anthropology Department
This summer students in Dr. Julie Markin’s Archaeology Field School worked alongside Lost Towns Project staff and community volunteers to look at the effects of climate change on ancient settlements along the Patuxent River. Students will talk about what they learned about climate change impacts on 10,000 years of occupation in the Jug Bay Wetlands, the wonderful benefits of collaborative and community based field work, and the research they are doing now that was inspired by this summer’s work. Learn how you can be involved in investigating the impacts of climate change on the archaeological resources of the Chester River.
