Maryland archaeologists uncover ancient Native American site

Archaeologists searching for clues about Native American settlements in Anne Arundel County have hit a trove of pottery, arrowheads and perhaps even the remnants of a wigwam near Jug Bay.

The only problem is, they haven’t hit their specific target: evidence of the Middle Woodland Period settlement from roughly zero to A.D. 900. Instead, there are plenty of shards of earlier and later settlements, including amazing finds like 10,000-year-old spear points.

“I thought we’d find plenty of it here, but not yet,” said Al Luckenbach, county archaeologist. “Just a lot of everything else.”
