The Herring Run Archaeology Project is a free, community-based, public archaeology program that brings pasts into the present through collaborative archaeological discovery focused on Baltimore’s cultural heritage, at sites including Eutaw Farm and the Ship Caulkers’ Houses in Fell’s Point.
Archaeologists Lisa Kraus and Jason Shellenhamer donate their time to this project during multiple excavation and laboratory sessions throughout the year. We’re an all-volunteer project, which means we have no permanent funding and no paid staff, but we do have the finest volunteers a not-for-profit project could ask for!
Keep an eye on this blog and our Facebook page for new discoveries and information about how you can get involved! You can also ask us anything you’d like to know about archaeology in Baltimore. Contact us directly at:
The project is made possible by our gracious partner organizations:
And you, if we’re lucky!
