Lots of digging, very little gold, but maybe history
Perryville Town Commis-sioner Barbara Brown expects a good story will come from the holes dug around Rodgers Tavern.

A group of volunteers from the Archaeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake dug a series of 4-by-4-foot holes on the grounds of the Colonial-era tavern last month. Led by local historian Joseph Hopkins, the holes were dug in a pattern.

One of the holes was dug where an addition used to sit, Brown said. Another was dug just outside the tavern kitchen.

“They sifted, catalogued and cleaned the artifacts,” Brown said.

We do that.
