by Western Maryland Chapter Members

            It’s time for our annual Show & Tell event in which you, the membership, is the program. We will start the evening with a brief power point presentation on the Chapter’s field work at the Barton site this past Summer and November’s work at the Mexico Farm Dig.

            Following, we invite folks to bring their latest acquisitions; an artifact, geofact, fossil, an article or book, a report on an interesting site you have visited or whatever you think may appeal to those in attendance.

            Do you have something that needs identification? Bring it in and we may just have an answer for you!

Join us for an interesting evening 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.
