When they found her, they thought she'd fallen asleep on the trash pit, but on closer inspection it was obvious she'd been partially scalped, and had pulled herself into the pit -- presumably to hide -- and bled to death. The archaeologists called her "Granny" because she'd lost her lower molars. In fact, she was only 40 years old and one of the 78 people -- out of a population of 140 -- who died in the Indian attack that March day in 1622, on Martin's Hundred, one of the earliest English settlements in the New World.

History has never looked as good as it does at the home on Duke of Gloucester Street in downtown Annapolis. While historic homes are the norm in this area, this tidy single-family home with Colonial-blue shutters and a green tin roof is a successful blend of old and new. Old studs, new faux-painted walls. Old exposed brick, new walnut floors. Old slate fireplaces, new granite countertops. Old glass windows, new stained-glass inserts. Victoria and Ron Duncan, the relatively new owners (they've lived in the house for just over a year)

COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- There are 100 gardens covering 301 acres in Colonial Williamsburg: everything from the kitchen garden at the James Geddy House to the sheared hollies and hedges at the Governor's Palace. Maintaining those gardens keeps 50 volunteers and 50 full-time gardeners clipping, digging and raking. That labor force needs bushels of money for plants, tools and payroll. Donors recently gave gifts of $200,000 to $2 million to ensure five gardens get what they need to thrive.

Annapolis leaders have effectively killed a controversial plan to centralize government offices by selling the historic City Hall to the YWCA.A City Council subcommittee slashed more than $2 million in the capital budget earmarked for the proposed deal, which called for moving administrative offices to a five-story building owned by Annapolis Federal Savings Bank on Main Street. The budget is expected to be approved by the council tonight.The YWCA is quietly continuing to negotiate on a property in the Bestgate area.
