Lisa Myers, AAA’s manager, web and database services, discovered a stone projectile point in her late father’s belongings. Her father lived his entire life in Western Maryland’s Washington County so Lisa contacted the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory (MAC Lab) for assistance in identifying the point. Patricia Samford, director of the MAC Lab identified the artifact as a Selby Bay/Fox Creek point, roughly 1000-2000 years old. For more information on the Selby Bay point and the Maryland State Museum of Archaeology at Jefferson Patterson Park, click here.
