Western Maryland Chapter - ASM


   Welcome to the Western Maryland Chapter

                                    of the Archeological Society of MD, Inc.




Our Next Event :
September 23, 7:30 PM - LaVale Library

Woodland Village in Alabama

by Catie Snider

      Catie Snider of Potomac State College will present a power point presentation

on a Woodland village site located along the Tennessee River in Alabama.

The site was to be impacted by the expansion of a gypsum plant and TRC, a cultural

resource management company, conducted investigations of the site.

      A very large occupation site was found rich in lithics, ceramics as well as human

remains.   What first appeared to be 13 burials was in fact over 300.

Catie analyzed the human remains, determining sex, age at death, stature,

pathology and trauma.


Join us for what should be a very interesting evening program and bring a friend.

The Western Maryland Chapter of the Archeological Society of Maryland was established to educate and encourage amateur archeologists by conducting field sessions, weekend digs and hosting guest speakers on a wide range of archeological topics. Projects such as the excavation of the Late Woodland sites in Cresaptown and Barton's in Allegany County and Sang Run in Garrett County have created a growing interest in our local cultural resources.
