This research will lay the foundation for the Lost Towns Project team to revisit and investigate nearly 200 previously recorded sites in Anne Arundel County over the next two years. To manage the sheer number of sites to be considerd, the research team has developed a "SITE INDEX MAP & KEY," which will be used to manage site visits, track each sites status, and monitor our progress.
(Note that the Site Index Map and associated site data are in a section of the site that is passowrd protected. Detailed site data and locations are available only to qualified researchers.. Please contact Jane Cox at 410-222-7440 to obtain the login and password.)
Below you will find links to a bibliography of some of the most relevant Middle Woodland period sources available. Forty-five of these documents have been summarized as a way of providing other researchers a brief tool for summarizing the current state of knowledge on the time period. The annotated bibliography provides a starting point for the exploration of the Middle Woodland period and can lend insights into the scholalry inquiry of this time period over the past 50 years. The original texts can be found in various repositiories; some can be found online, at the MHT library, or on file at Anne Arundel County's Cultural Resources Division in Annapolis, MD. Soon the team will develop a GIS mapping component of this tool, which will allow researchers to consider questions of temporal and spatial significance of this era.
