When you think of archaeology, you may not think of new artifacts being found all the time here in Maryland. But according to our guest, Director of Archaeology for Anne Arundel County Stephanie Sperling, there may be things worth digging up in your backyard! Stick around as we learn about a day in the life of a Maryland archaeologist. We’re covering everything from Stephanie’s favorite finds like a 10,000 year old Native American site and a forgotten 20th century baseball field to the technology used in the field today and why an archaeologist won’t go anywhere without her trowel. Get the dirt out of your ears for this episode of PerserveCast!
Stephanie Sperling served as a internship advisor to Matthew Nickolson, a Preservation Maryland Waxter Intern, who worked closely with the Lost Towns Project on an archaeological dig and lab work as part of his degree program in Environmental Sustainability from the University of Baltimore. Matt’s research is available on the Preservation Maryland blog.
