Catalog of Publications

More than 25 years of Professional & Scholarly Inquiry into the Cultural Past of the Mid-Atlantic

Over the years, the results of a broad range of research and archaeological investigations conducted by the Lost Towns Project have been captured in often difficult to access “grey literature.” Some of the Lost Towns Project’s larger and long-term research initiatives include Providence (1649), Londontown (1684), and Herrington (1664), and most recently, the Pig Point Native American Ceremonial Complex.  Recent collaborations have been undertaken in partnership with the Gibson Island Historical Society, the village of Galesville, Anne Arundel County’s “Generals Highway” survey project with SHA, and public outreach with the Anne Arundel County Public Schools STEM program.

Archaeology at London Town

Below, you will find a large collection of publications on archaeological and historical research, with links to the scanned copies of many (and someday, most) of the articles, journals, papers and presentations that Lost Towns collaborators have produced. This is designed as a grey literature receptacle for all of the archaeological and heritage related studies relevant to the Mid-Atlantic and Central Maryland region. If you have documents you would like to add to this library, please contact us (webmaster@losttownsproject.org)!

This website also has a newsletter archive of the Letters from Lost Towns and The Chronicles from the County, which assembles decades of reports on local archaeology in Anne Arundel County.
