While April must come to an end, and with it Maryland Archeology Month, your opportunities to get involved in Maryland archeology continue throughout the year. The Maryland Archeology Month website lists many exciting post-April events. Here’s a sampling:
- Volunteer with the War of 1812 dig at Hampstead Hill in Patterson Park in Baltimore City! This project will continue throughout most of May. You can volunteer for as little as half a day, or get dirty five days a week (Tuesday through Saturday). Visit Baltimore Heritage to learn more
- Be an “archeologist for a day” (or many days!) at the Maryland Historical Trust’s Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum in Calvert County annual Public Archeology Program beginning May 7th and continuing through June. Volunteers are welcome every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Visit the website to register.
- Work side-by-side with archeologists exploring Native American life in Frederick County for the 2014 Field Session, hosted jointly by the Archeological Society of Maryland and the Maryland Historical Trust. This 11-day field extravaganza begins on May 23rd and continues through June 2nd, inclusive of weekends and the Memorial Day holiday. You can register for as little as a half-day, or as much as you like, at the Society’s website.
