We Dig Hampstead Hill! Lecture & Discussion with Project Archeologists
October 25, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Patterson Park, known as Hampstead Hill in the early 1800s, was the site of Baltimore’s major defensive position against a British land invasion in the War of 1812. With funding from the Maryland Heritage Area Authority and the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program, Baltimore Heritage completed We Dig Hampstead Hill – an archeological investigation of Patterson Park in spring 2014.
The project archeologists spent the summer analyzing artifacts and are now ready to share some exciting stories about the history and archeology of Hampstead Hill!
