Conference: American History through the Archaeology of the Potomac River Valley

A conference and edited volume of essays on American history through the lens of archaeology of the Potomac River Valley.

This grant funds a small conference focused on developing an edited book manuscript describing research completed as part of the NEH-funded project, “The Lower Potomac River Valley at Contact, 1500-1720” (RZ-51442-12). This conference will be organized by Dr. Julie King and her co-collaborator, Barbara J. Heath (University of Tennessee), and will be held Sunday, May 14 through Wednesday, May 17, 2017. The book manuscript proposed as an outcome of this project would consist of 14-15 chapters by different authors, all of whom participated in the original sponsored NEH project in one capacity or another. The purpose of this concluding conference would be to review, critique, and better integrate individual essays for a planned peer-reviewed book. The goal is to have a final manuscript ready for submission to an academic press on or about September 1, 2017.
