Diagnostic Artifacts in Maryland
This site introduces some of the most significant types of datable artifacts recovered from archaeological sites in Maryland. Its 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. But many of these artifacts have a far broader geographical range than just Maryland, so it's hoped that the website will be of use to a wide audience.
