River Farm (18AN881) - Survey work conducted in 2016 identified a large and complex prehistoric base camp or village site on the shore of the Patuxent River, a place that was occupied from as early as 8,000 BC.

The River Farm site is located less than a mile from a prolific Native American ceremonial site (18AN50) and was a significant component of the larger ‘Pig Point’ Complex. Previous studies have identified buried living surfaces, cooking hearths, a Late Woodland trash ‘midden’ that was radiocarbon dated to 1010 AD, and over 10,000 artifacts proving that humans were present at the site at least 8,000 years ago!
