Date(s):

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 5:30 pm

Overview:

St. Mary’s City was founded in 1634 and served as Maryland’s capital until 1695. Soon after, it was abandoned and all above ground trace gradually vanished. Henry M. Miller Ph.D., Maryland heritage scholar at Historic St. Mary’s City, will explore the findings from half a century of sustained archaeological exploration of Maryland’s first city and capital. This will include the fascinating clues from the recent testing of an underwater site found along on the St. Mary’s shoreline that may be the first 17th-century tobacco-fleet vessel discovered in the Chesapeake.

Cost per person is $7.50 per session, with a 20% discount for members.
