2018 JPPM Speaker Series

Thursday, April 19

“From Slavery to Shelter: Stories from Baltimore's Aged Men and Women's Home of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 1870-1910” An archaeological excavation conducted in downtown Baltimore in 1980 uncovered a building foundation and privy pit for a late 19th-century Aged Home. Students from Huntingtown High School Archaeology Club spent the 2017-2018 school year analyzing artifacts from this site and researching the home’s history using church and census records, insurance maps and newspapers. Their work reveals a fascinating look at a church-sponsored charity that cared for elderly former slaves.   Presentation by: Huntingtown High School Archaeology Club
