Speaker:  James G. Gibb, Gibb Archaeological Consulting
Topic:  Little Guns on the Big Elk: The Search and Discovery of Fort Hollingsworth (1813-1815) The 2012 Archeological Society of Maryland Field Session set its sights on the discovery of the War of 1812 Fort Hollingsworth. The citizens of Cecil County built this earthwork in April 1813 to defend themselves from raiding British marines and to protect the “back door” to Philadelphia. The militia fended off one raid in July 1814 and dismantled the fort in 1815 after the signing of the Treaty of Ghent. In this illustrated presentation, Jim Gibb, principal investigator, describes how the research team employed state-of-the-art technologies and the scientific method to identify the fort’s location and orientation.

June 19, 2012 (Tuesday at 7:30pm):
Event:   AACAS Chapter Meeting
Speaker:   Patricia Samford and Ed Chaney, Maryland Archaeological Conservation (MAC) Laboratory, Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum
Topic:   "Archaeological and Slave Demographics in the Colonial Chesapeake"
Descripton:   Although characterized by similar landscape, climate, staple crops and ruling classes, the colonial Chesapeake is better understood as several smaller regions. Some of the cultural differences evident in these smaller areas can, in part, be understood as a result of the differential distributions of African cultures in the Chesapeake. The upper Chesapeake’s enslaved population was derived largely from Senegambia, Ghana and Sierra Leone, while Igbo from the Bight of Biafra and groups from the Bight of Benin were concentrated in Virginia’s lower Tidewater. This talk examines the archaeology of slave sites in the Upper and Lower Chesapeake to show how distributions of African cultures affected the development of colonial culture in these different areas.
