Archaeologists search for 17th century chapel in Maryland

Archaeolgists in Maryland are looking for a Roman Catholic chapel which was built in 1662.

On April 1, the team found broken glass and wrought nails. In addition, “we might have a structural post hole,” Lawrence said April 2.

Pieces of glass showed where the lead panes intersected and, based on that, the team thinks the 1662 chapel had diamond-shaped window panes, Lawrence said.

It was the second weekend of archaeological work this year, but there isn’t funding at the moment for more, he said.
