Archaeologists Make Colonial Discovery
Archaeologists have uncovered four Colonial Period graves and the remains of a fence that bound the community cemetery in Port Tobacco, according to the Port Tobacco Archaeological Project.

The remains were found during a two-week study of historic Port Tobacco. Volunteers from Maryland, New York and New Jersey participated in the excavation of four sites that had been identified during an archaeological survey of the Colonial town site last fall.
