Patuxent Point (18CV271) in Calvert County, Maryland is a late 17th-century site located at the confluence of the Patuxent and Potomac Rivers. The Roberts Site (18CV350), also in Calvert County, is an early 18th-century inland site on the Patuxent River. Abigail will compare dietary data from two features at the Patuxent Point Site to previously analyzed dietary data recovered from the Roberts Site to gain an understanding of colonial dietary practices along the Patuxent River in the early Colonial period. Dietary data includes faunal, floral, and vessel remains. Free event. Zoom Meeting - the link to the meeting will be sent to CCASM members.
