The Hampden Community Archaeology Project continues its spring workshop series with a lecture by noted industrial archaeologist John McGrain. Mr. McGrain is the author of the well-known book From Pig Iron to Cotton Duck, as well as other books and numerous articles on the history of Baltimore County. He spent many years as the County Historian for Baltimore County. He will entertain and educate us with a slide-illustrated talk about Hampden-Woodberry's industrial history. Q&A and discussion to follow. Please join us at 7:00 PM may 22, 2008 at the Roosevelt Park Recreation Center, located at 1121 W. 36th St. For questions or for further information, please call Dave Gadsby at 410-227-2578, or email dgadsby@anth.umd.edu.

Can't remember...one of you guys came by our house in "Brick Hill" a while back and looked at a few things we found. Well, now we have done some landscaping and have unearthed an ENORMOUS amount of broken glass, bottles, pottery, and random objects. We would love for you to look at it. Not sure who or how to contact...

Its tough to know who you are, since you left the comment anonymously, but I am probably the best person to contact. My email is hampdenarchy@gmail.com. I think I might have an idea about your identity, so I'll try to contact you, as well.
