African Diaspora Archeology: A Collaboration with Descendants

Maryland Archeology Month 2024 highlights archeologists collaborating with African American descendant communities to conduct archeological research, preserve cultural heritage, and address historical injustices. These collaborations aim to incorporate African American traditional knowledge, perspectives, and interests into archeological studies through community-based participatory research, where community members actively contribute to research design, excavation, interpretation, and dissemination of findings. These collaborations foster mutual respect and equitable sharing of knowledge, which result in more comprehensive and culturally sensitive interpretations of Maryland's past. We invite you to join Governor Moore in celebrating April as Maryland Archeology Month, and to learn about collaborations among archeologists and African American descendant communities in Maryland by exploring the links below!
