The Making of Plantation Society in MD: A Research Partnership Between Hisotry and Historical Archaeology

The Research Division of the SMCC, a historical agency of the State of Maryland and an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, has begun a broad interdisciplinary study of the origins of American Society in the Tidewater South. A renewed grant from the NEH will enable a team of historians, anthropologists, and architectural historians to continue experimenting with new methods of interpreting results of a series of archaeological excavations at St. Mary's City, one of the best preserve unexplored, 17th century urban sites in English-settled America. Project will go beyond mere data collecting into a mainstream of humanistic scholarship.
