Up Coming Field Work Opportunities:
Join the Lost Towns Project on Gibson Island, where we will be conducting block excavations to document a possible earthfast 17th century structure that is overlapping with 18th and 19th century structures. The Linniston earthfast dwelling which could date as early as the mid-17th century represents one of the most historically significant historic sites discovered in Anne Arundel County in the last three decades. The structure is believed to be directly connected to the William Worthington Family, as documented in historical records.
Excavation Days include 10/18, 10/19, 10/20, 10/25, 10/26, and 10/27. We excavate from 8AM-3PM, daily.
To register to attend the excavation please email Volunteers@losttownsproject.org
