Stephanie Sperling, M.A.A., appointed Archaeological Research Director for Anne Arundel County!

Arundel County’s Cultural Resources Division is excited to announce the appointment of Stephanie Sperling to the position of Director of Archaeological Research. Sperling has been an important and influential research archaeologist working with Anne Arundel County since 2008, during which time she has worked as a consultant for the County’s Cultural Resources Division, and has provided professional services to the Lost Towns Project, Inc. and the Anne Arundel County Trust for Preservation, Inc. as an independent consultant.  She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, where she earned her Master of Applied Anthropology (M.A.A.) and a certificate in historic preservation from the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. Sperling began working with the County first as a field director and more recently, as the Principal Investigator studying numerous sites that make up the County’s rich archaeological heritage. In addition to more conventional archaeological investigations, including survey and data recovery efforts, her recent research has included assessing how coastal flooding and sea level rise impact cultural resources.
