Please join us for this important conversation about protecting our shared local heritage. Anne Arundel County's Cultural Resources Division partnered with the Anne Arundel County Trust for Preservation, Inc. to complete a cultural resources hazard mitigation grant project, supported by the National Park Service’s Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund (administered by the Maryland Historical Trust), to identify, evaluate, and document imminently threatened archaeological and historic sites in Anne Arundel County. The project focused on the high-risk flood zones in Pasadena, Jessup, Laurel, Maryland City, Shady Side, and Deale. Ms. Poulos will discuss the results of this project and the field and research methodology employed for assessing a massively large number of historic resources and archaeological sites at high risk of inundation.
