Upcoming Events

June 11, 2015 - 5:30pm
Join us for a lecture on the forensic investigations of the 17th Century Chesapeake with Dr. Doug Owsley, Physical Anthropology Division Head at the Smithsonian Institution. Archaeologists have rebuilt the Brick Chapel in St. Mary’s City based on evidence of its construction and material remnants recovered from the site. The chapel as it stands today speaks to the devotion and early determination of the Chesapeake colonists to settle in this new land. The skeletons recovered from 17th century graves, both here and throughout the mid-Atlantic region provide us with another sort of foundation upon which to reconstruct history. The information from the bones and burials allow us to assemble the personal histories of Chesapeake colonists. Brick by brick and bone by bone we piece together this complex history.
