What Archaeology Can Tell Us About The War Of 1812
A new book is being published that alerts us not to the written history of the War of 1812 but to what we can learn from the physical remains, the lay of the land, the artifacts. what archeology can add to the narrative we thought we knew. The book is called "Archaeology of the War of 1812." Sheilah talks with its co-editors, Julie Schablitsky, Chief Archaeologist of the Maryland State Highway Administration, and Michael Lucas, who just left the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, where he was research director for archaeological field projects. He's now Curator of Historical Archaeology at the New York State Museum.
