Wat je gaat doen

In a wooded area of the 1,700-acre Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary, we’ll get our hands dirty at a unique excavation site, rediscovering a centuries-old Native American village with the Lost Towns Project. My crew and I will begin the workshop with a tour of Pindell Bluffs, showcasing the artifacts we've already discovered. We’ll also demonstrate common techniques used in archaeology fieldwork. Then you'll get to work, sifting and processing artifacts. Recently at this site, helpers and archeologists have found 8,000-year-old projectile points, ceramics, and ritualistically "killed" gorgets—purposefully broken pendants buried symbolically. These findings are among the most important discoveries in the Mid-Atlantic region, helping us better understand Native American populations who lived here thousands of years ago.

Lost Towns

Hi. I’m Dr. Zac, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I am an expert in prehistoric cultures of the Eastern seaboard, specializing in lithic studies (stone tools!) and Paleo Indian research. I’ve led investigations at dozens of archaeological sites along Maryland's Patuxent River. I am also a member of the Lost Towns Project, a non-profit with a mission to bring the public on archaeological adventures with real archaeologists to discover, explore, and help preserve historic sites throughout the Mid-Atlantic. The Lost Towns team brings together professionals, volunteers, and students to study real sites, from Native American villages to 17th-century colonial towns. Our research and findings are often published in professional journals.
