Artifacts from local historic and prehistoric sites will be on hand to examine. Senior archaeologist Michael Clem holds a Master’s degree in Anthropology from American University, and received his Bachelor’s degree in Humanities from Georgetown University. He has worked as an archaeologist for some 15 years, primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region, but has worked in the American southwest and in Argentina.
