Diagnostic Artifacts in Maryland
The Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory’s Diagnostic Artifacts in Maryland web site has been created to provide an introduction to some of the most significant types of artifacts recovered from archaeological sites in Maryland. Their goal is to assist the professional archaeologist, and anyone else with an interest in Maryland archaeology, to recognize the objects typically found here, and to become familiar with the descriptive terms commonly used in this area. But many of these artifacts have a far broader geographical range than just Maryland, so we hope the web site will be of use to a wide audience.
