In celebration of Maryland archeology month, the Archeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake and anthropology program at Harford Community presented Tales from the Crypt: Excavations at Historic St. Mary’s City. The lecture by Dr. Timothy Riordan examined how the excavation of 17th century graves around the reconstruction site of the brick chapel at St. Mary’s City have added to our understanding of the site and the people who were buried there. Beginning with the lead coffins project in 1992 and continuing with additional examinations, significant insights were gained on life, death, and mourning in the 17th century. It was an informative talk and the room was packed for a Friday evening lecture.
