Booklet answers questions about historical archaeology

County archaeologists trying to find 17th-century "lost towns" in Anne Arundel County have produced a 64-page booklet on archaeology in Maryland.

"A Layperson's Guide to Historical Archaeology in Maryland" is available free at the county archaeology lab at Heritage Center, 2666 Riva Road, Room 150; at the Department of Planning and Code Enforcement, 2664 Riva Road, fourth floor; and at London Town park in Edgewater.

The booklet answers common questions about how archaeologists find and explore historic sites. Information: 410-222-7441.

The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development has awarded a grant of $121,900 to Anne Arundel County Economic Opportunity Committee Inc. under the Neighborhood Business Development Program.

The money will help the committee build a job research and computer training lab. The lab will help low-income residents who need skills for employment. The Neighborhood Business Development Program provides as much as 50 percent of project costs for small businesses starting or expanding in urban, suburban or rural revitalization areas.
