A SEARCH TO IDENTIFY THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY SHORELINE OF ST. MARY'S CITY, MARYLAND.
(Under the direction of Professor Lawrence Babits) Department of History, July 1999.
Previous research and new survey methodology generated a map of the seventeenth-century St. Mary's City River shoreline bordering the historic city to the north and southwest. The map will aid archaeological investigation of the old town's port area. Terrestrial archaeology at St. Mary's City, Maryland, will benefit from delineating the seventeenth century shoreline by the better definition of the early city's layout. Maritime archaeology benefits from this project through introducing a new cost effective technique for shallow water surveys.
