Boroughs has been involved with archaeological digs on the Eastern Shore and beyond. Last summer, he led students in SU’s first archaeological field school in more than a decade. They helped determine the footprint of the former fellowship hall at the Christ Rock Church historical site in Cambridge, MD.

In the process, they uncovered over 4,000 artifacts, from coins to bottles to small toys, believed to have been remnants from 19th- and 20th-century community socials and church picnics. They helped tell the story of the church and the community.

Sponsored by the Nabb Research Center, admission to the discussion is free and the public is invited. Audience participation is encouraged.
