Archaeology and Memory at Mount Clare (Winter Speaker Series)

February 10, 2021 @ 7:30 pm

As part of Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Winter Speaker Series, Archaeology and Memory at Mount Clare, will take place February 10.  This speaker series continues on Wednesdays through March 17.

All sessions will take place virtually.

Topic discussion: Slavery was a fact of life at Mount Clare, an 18th century antebellum plantation near Baltimore, Md. Despite efforts to ignore the presence and significance of enslaved Blacks there, historical and archeological research shows the integral role they played. National Park Service Archeologist Teresa Moyer will share this research, which offers opportunities to discuss historical structures and the ways they carry to the present.

Cost is $7.50 per session. You may also register for the full series online.
