BONUS: What We Can Learn From Dirt
BONUS content from Episode 5, "The Lost City: Historic St. Mary’s City, Maryland."
A brief stop at the active dig site of Historic St. Mary's City's Archeology Field School, where Dr. Travis Parno is guiding students from St. Mary's College in a dig to investigate the site of Maryland's first State House. Dr. Parno also tells me about his ongoing research into early taverns, the powerful enslavers who ran them, and how they can shed light on the codification of slavery in Maryland and America.
Music in this episode is by Hesperus, from their album An Early American Quilt, released on the Maggie’s Music Label.
