Ask the Archaeologists: Mount Clare Archaeology Past and Future

Author(s): Teresa Moyer

Year: 2016


Archaeology took place at Mount Clare, a former plantation the remnants of which sit in Carroll Park in southwestern Baltimore, beginning in the 1970s. It not only shaped the story told at the site, but influenced many archaeologists' careers. In 2014, Baltimore City reclaimed the archaeological collection. This historic moment provides archaeologists with an opportunity to reflect on their time with the Mount Clare sites and collections. It is also a moment to propose new ways of using the old collections. This paper draws on the memories and reflections of archaeologists who worked at Mount Clare to propose a what-next for archaeology in Carroll Park.
