Historical society to host artifact exhibit
CAMBRIDGE — The Dorchester County Historical Society, in cooperation with the South Dorchester Folk Museum, will support the Mid Shore Archaeological Club in hosting its annual artifact exhibit from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.
The artifacts in the exhibit were found in lower Dorchester County on lands that no longer exist due to massive erosion.
Dorchester has lost more shoreline than any other county in Maryland. The exhibitors and their families have been salvaging these ancient artifacts for generations by searching the shorelines and collecting the remnants of this important part of Dorchester heritage.
The only archaeological evidence that remains to be seen and studied from these past campsites are in these collections. Displays will range from Smith Island north up the Bay to Tilghman Island, including Elliott, Hoopers and Taylors islands.
This family-friendly event also will include artifact identification for those who have that need, and there will be a silent auction.
Entrance to the event is $3 for attendees over 12 years old.
