Author(s): David G Orr

Year: 2020


This is an abstract from the session entitled "From Maryland’s Ancient [Seat] and Chief of Government: Papers in Honor of Henry M. Miller" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

Honoring Henry Miller With The Harrington Medal Serves As An Act of Recognition Not Only For Henry But Also For The Rich And Complex Historical Archaeology of the Maryland Tidewater. Henry Has Influenced My Own Career In Countless Ways But I Will Concentrate On A Powerful Metaphoric Approach For My Discussion.The Argument Was Distilled From Justinian's Law Code And Is Expressed In One Phrase, "Sed Humanius Est". I Will Mesh The Meaning of that Quotation In Three Topics. First, The Invisible And Visible Worlds Uncovered At Historic St Mary's City, Second, The Teaching Of The Resulting Interpretations, and Third, The Impact That These Discoveries Have Had On All Of Us.I Will Flood This Excursus With the Fruits of My Memory And Reach Back to 1965 When I First Visited St Mary'sCity With My Graduate (University Of Maryland) School Roomate Burton Kummerow, a Future Director Of the Site.
