The Lost Towns Project is a team of professional archaeologists and historians, working closely with the Anne Arundel County Government, in Maryland, to discover and explore the County's rich heritage. The team is committed to sharing the discover process and the County's rich history with the public through hands-on experiences, lectures, publications, and exhibits.
We welcome you to explore the website, and to join us as a volunteer with the Project to assist us as we rediscover the County's history. We welcome volunteers (no experience required!) to assist in field investigations, laboratory studies, archival research, and interpretive programs. Check out our newest discoveries - learn more about the Project - explore a Lost Town or sign up to volunteer! Join us to rediscover the History in your own backyards!
