Summary
"As the foundations of the modern world were being laid at the beginning of the 19th century, Annapolis, Maryland, identified itself as the Ancient City. This unusual apellation has served Annapolis into the present as a city that has consistently defined and redefined for itself what being ancient means. The process of historical recognition and preservation that has played out in Annapolis provides valuable insights into the way modern Americans in general have come to know and use the past." "This volume will be of interest to historical archaeologists, archaeological theorists, historical preservationists, historians of the middle-Atlantic states, and community historians."--BOOK JACKET
