The 2018 Tyler Bastian Field Session in Maryland Archeology will be held at the Calverton Site (18CV22) from 25 May through 4 June, 2018. The Calverton site is a 17th century townsite located on the bank of Battle Creek in Calvert County, Maryland. This was the site of the 2017 Field Session and work will concentrate on following up and expanding upon discoveries made during that Field Session
The Field Session is held in cooperation with the Maryland Historic Trust's Office of Archeology. The purpose of the Field Session is to introduce lay persons to archeological methods and to teach Maryland's past through hands-on involvement while making meaningful contributions to the study of Maryland archeology. Kirsti Uunila will serve, once again, as the Principal Investigator and will work with MHT, Office of Archeology staff who will provide professional oversight of volunteers at the site.
