Maryland Day 2018 Anthropology Exhibits
History along our Highways
The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration employs archaeologists and architectural historians who manage historic sites along our road systems. Stop by and learn about their recent discovery by using 3D virtual reality glasses! Artifacts from the Bush Tavern in Harford County will also be on display along with a ceramic mending station.
Deal Island Peninsula Project
The exhibit showcases Department of Anthropology research on the human and cultural aspects of key environmental issues for the Chesapeake Bay, including climate change, sustainable fisheries and farming, harmful algae blooms, and the integration of coastal communities into environmental decision making.
