You can help me get this fieldwork off the ground by donating to the project at http://www.gofundme.com/g0g2k! I am a self-funded PhD student looking for money wherever I can to help facilitate this research. A donation of any size will be very helpful. Grants are very competitive and have been few and far between for the humanities recently, but enough small contributions from the public can make a big difference. You don’t have to be a millionaire to be a philanthropist. Archaeology is the domain of the public, and the research we do, we seek to share with everyone. It is, after all, *our* collective past. We are hoping that the results of this study can be translated into a teaching tool for the visitors of Historic St. Mary’s City, many of whom are fourth-grade students on school tours, as they learn about Maryland’s (and America’s) early colonial past. Thank you in advance for any contributions!
