About me

Location Baltimore, MD, United States
Introduction As part of the state’s bicentennial commemoration, the Maryland State Highway Administration’s archaeologists have partnered with state, county, and federal agencies to locate, survey, and excavate War of 1812 battlefields, encampments, and even a shipwreck. Since our work will continue into 2014, we thought it was important to establish a web presence where the public and our partners can follow along as we learn new things about these sites. In addition to hearing about our local discoveries, archaeologists, architectural historians, and other professionals working on War of 1812-related sites anywhere in the country are invited to contribute. We hope you’ll stop by often to read about our efforts to uncover new and fascinating stories about an obscure, yet significant time in our nation’s history. Our editor is Dr. Lisa Kraus.
