We have chosen the First Americans as our initial topic because of the tens of the thousands of years of human settlements in Maryland. They are often neglected in the emphasis on the European invasions on the 17th Century. The pioneering work of research archaeologists like Drs. Stephen Potter and Robert Wall of Towson University among scores of others, both amateur and professional, have continued to bring to light complex cultures that thrived throughout the region for generations.
In coordination with the Preservation Trade Network’s International Preservation Trades Workshop, the group will host a volunteer community day on Sunday, October 28, 2018 at the Fairview Cemetery on Old Gas House Pike in Frederick.
