Historic St. Mary's City

Log Number: ST-248580-OMS-20

The Historic St. Mary's City Commission will use the funds to hire a conservation assistant to treat high-priority materials recovered through archaeological excavations from religious, economic, governmental, and residential sites within Historic St. Mary's City, a National Historic Landmark that commemorates the founding of Maryland. The materials include iron, copper, lead, white metals, composite materials, and organics. Once treated, the artifacts will be properly packaged and placed in a dedicated and environmentally appropriately storage area, ready for incorporation into future exhibitions and use by researchers. The project will be matched with $146,026 in non-federal share.
